daily demonstrated love was but a small glimpse of JESUS’ LOVE.

Adela truly was the virtuous wife in Proverbs 31. She brings her

husband and family good, never harm, all the days of her life. Adela

revered God and lived her entire life with the desire to honor and

serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Adela was the obedient servant. She

never said a negative word about anyone and befriended everyone

was in need. Adela loved all her children’s many friends. She kissed

them, hugged them, calling them all “mijo” or “mija”, and fed them

as they walked into the house. She was the MOM of the

neighborhood. Other Mom’s in the neighborhood had to work. Our

Mom Adela’s work was being a mom to those children who missed

their moms. Adela will be missed by so, so many. Our comfort and

joy is knowing Adela is in the Loving Arms of Jesus
