  1. Belen was always good to me whenever I would see her, even when Stella left me waiting outside on a rainy day, Belen came out and invited me inside. The closeness I observed between her and her family was refreshing in these times when family is often put aside in the race to succeed in ones career or outside endeavors. May the Angels come down and guide Belen to the promised place where there shall be no more pain, illness nor lonelyness and may God cause eternal light to shine upon her and grant her peace.

  2. BELEN WAS LIKE MY 2ND MOTHER,SHE WAS ALWAYS SO KIND AND LOVING.SHE WILL LIVE ON IN MY HEART FOREVER. WITH ALL MY LOVE, EILEEN (ANOTHER DAUGHTER)

  4. Belen was one of the sweetest people that I ever knew. She was always hospitable and whenever I stayed over she would get up and fix breakfast for us. IT was always something to look forward to. I felt like she was my 2nd mom and I loved to be around her, she was such a Godly woman and I will miss her greatly.
