  2. Mom angels gathered near your side so very close to you they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through. Your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky where Jesus held his arms to you it was time to say good-bye. Struggling with my selfish thoughts I wanted you to stay but Jesus knew the answer and I knew you loved him too. I gave to you life’s greatest gift. ( The gift of letting go.) Love always your Son & Family; Humberto, Margie, Eric, Jason, Antonio Ontiveros

  3. Elida Ontiveros, she was a woman of faith and loved our Lord. She like so many others in the Altar Society was a hard worker. We missed not seeing you and did not know what had happened to you. You were always on our mind and prayers. Prayers will continue for you and your family. Till we meet again.

  4. For my Grandma Your life was full of loving deeds, forever thoughtful to our special needs. You were a wonderful woman with a heart of gold, keeping the family close that was never apart. You shared your love and kindness with everyone near, for we shall treasure our memories of you in our hearts. I thank you for the time you held me in my arms when I was a child; the time that I spent my days at your home while my mother was away working full time. You were the first to see my creativity at a young age; you saw my passion that I love to do. It is something I can never truly forget. Being at your home as a child was something special as you would take me to church. There is where I understood God, who he is and that he exists; had it not been for your loving nature, I wouldn’t be the person who I am today. I’m a man now, beginning my life, it’s hard to let you go but I must move on to live my life. I thank you for all the love you have given me and I will forever treasure it in my heart; until one day our family will reunite as one in Heaven with you and Jesus Christ, forever. Your loving Grandson Jason R. Ontiveros

To many, my grandmother was a mother, a wife, a teacher, a cook, and a spiritual leader but most importantly, she was someone who I deeply loved and will always treasure her love. She showed me how to cook and to understand the importance of life through faith in God, inspired by her faith and hope. I know it is sad seeing her pass away, but knowing deep in my heart that she’s with the Lord in Heaven. Grandma, I love you and miss you dearly- Love your grandson, Anthony R.
