Mis condolencias a la familia Mercedes Cora. Mi abuelo era de Arroyo también y me consuelan estas palabras que espero les consuelen a ustedes también: "Él realmente se tragará a la muerte para siempre, y el Señor Soberano Jehová ciertamente limpiará las lágrimas de todo rostro... porque Jehová mismo [lo] ha hablado." Isaías 25:8
