Dear Calles family – I’m deeply sorry for your loss. While I did not know your mom I’ve known & been a client of Anthony’s for well over 25 years. You learn a great deal about someone & their family when you spend time (hours) sitting in a chair getting your hair cut, curled, or colored!
The obituary paints the very same picture that Anthony painted – her family was the number one love of her life! How blessed you all were to have her love and for her to be in your lives. May you find some comfort in the memories you have shared with her.
Sorry your family are experiencing such a sad event. We as on lookers are encouraged to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. So until your tears turn to joy may each one in the family lovingly comfort one another. (Romans 12:15)
Anthony and Family;
My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time. It is in these difficult times that you find comfort in family and friends. May you find comfort and strenght in each other.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
