I’m so great full to get to know Violeta
She was a very lively and friendly person
But what I’m more grateful is that I got to Pray
with Her and she accepted Jesus as Her Lord and Savior, so I’m sad because I won’t get to see her anymore but happy because I know I will get to see her again.
Rest in Peace my beautiful sister in Christ 🕊️🕊️🙏🙏💜💜
