Elena Palacios was an amazing mother, sister, wife, aunt, cousin, grandma, and friend. She was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer a few weeks back. Yesterday August 17, 2012 her soul departed from this world to be reunited with our Lord.

She was a restless lady, always on her feet, making people smile, preparing some of the most delicious Salvadorian dishes every minute of the day. With her in a room it was never quiet, her love for her family was endless, her grandchildren and everyone around her could always feel the love and care she carried with her, in every smile, in every glance and hug she ever gave.

As she never hesitated to give up a plate of food, or seat or welcome a stranger into her home today we ask that you help her family financially with the funeral expenses that have hit them abruptly.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. John 14:27-29
