Fernando,
Sorry to hear about your brother, Guadalupe. May the Great God of the Universe, Jehovah, be with you during this time of sorrow. Please remember the Scripture at John 5:28, 29 which reads: "28 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out."

Guadalupe B. Callejas

Born on a ranch in the Valley of South Eastern Texas on the outskirts of a small town called Ed Couch, Texas. His birth-date will forever be remembered as a National Holiday in the country of Mexico honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe; Mexico's Patron Saint. He was brought into this world on Dec. 12, 1933. He entered the heavenly stars near the shores of Lake Michigan and West of The Allegan Forrest in a small town called Fennville, Michigan. His last breathe was at 2:48 P.M. on May 25, 2019. He was a good and decent man and will forever be remembered as a man who toiled the land, who loved his people, and a man whose orbit was his culture..He is survived by the world as we know it and all the folks who loved and respected him endlessly. He has now gone into the heavens and resides in the arms and kingdom of our Heavenly Father and is the comfort of Our Lord and Savior ...Jesus Christ. "For it was the heavens that brought him to be"...He was 85 years old. This was our father...Your friend...Your Uncle...Your Grandfather.
