Dear Portillo family, I’m sorry for your loss and you have my deepest condolences. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. A promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of encouragement for the family.
I worked at Aberdeen several years ago and Jorge was one of my favorite patients. He was always smiling. Praying for y’all to find comfort and peace
