When my husband Juan Jose died, I was sad and couldn’t find any consolation. We loved each other so much, and I couldn’t stand the thought of not seeing him again. I asked the Virgin to let me see him. And she gave me that. So now every Day of the Dead, I put the altar and bring the offerings, and then my husband appears for a few seconds. So I can keep his image in my memory and find strength to live on without him.
"My husband retired, and in order to have something to do, he began cooking, and his cooking was horrible and he made us all sick. I was afraid that he might poison us. Thanks to Blessed San Pascual he got bored with cooking and began gardening instead."
I offer this bouquet of flowers to San Sebastian for having put Javier on my path of life. He has offered me his unconditional support when I needed it the most because I was feeling discouraged about my beauty salon. Colonia Condeza, Mexico D.F. Feb. 14, 2000
