Pictures from Virginia's funeral

Carlos and his family: Gaby his sister (hearing), Javier his brother behind her (deaf) their mother (hearing) and Carlos is holding his son 3 year old Jerimias and in front is his daugher, 6 year old Leilani with her friend, my daughter.

It was an amazing turn out of mostly deaf people . . . My uncle Marcos (missionary pastor) spoke at the gravesite and you can just see the interpreter to the far right.

At the memorial service Luke Everett signed in ASL while speaking in Spanish, my uncle interpreted to English while I interpreted to Mexican Sign Language. You can Just see me on the far left side here signing a song that was Virginia's favorit with all the former Rancho Sordo Mudo students that attended that day.

Virginia's favorit song was "Quiero Cantar": let me translate it for you

I want to sing a pretty song

of Him who changed my life,

I want to sing a lovely song

of Him who transformed me

it is my friend Jesus

he is my most faithful friend

He is God

He is King

He is Love

and the Truth

only in Him have I found

that peace that I was looking for

only in Him have I found

Please tell the family that I will be praying for them.

That is one of my favorite songs to sing in Spanish too! Still praying for everyone!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. It looks like it was a lovely service that she would have really appreciated.

I pray that each day all find comfort knowing that Virginia is truly resting in Paradise.

This song is beautiful!
