Grandma's high spirit and love for God and Family was unmatched. She is an angel that will forever leave her mark on the lives she touched . Grandma always made me & anyone and everyone feel like family and was adored by everyone whom met her. I personally appreciate the support and love she always had for me. My family is truly blessed to have known and been graced by Grandma Chapa.

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
"dios te bendiga" Grandma
