  2. We think of you and your extended family in Monterrey. It is always bittersweet when a faithful one goes to his reward. I couldn’t agree more with Jon.

    I have great memories of sitting beside Grandpa Lauro in our home in Hillsboro with his pocket translator having the greatest of conversations and fellowship. I don’t remember a word we said to each other, but I remember his Christlike spirit with crystal clarity. Like so many others we have had the privilege to know, Grandpa Lauro’s life is still a testimony to Christ in the earth and will point others to Him for a long time to come.

  3. Thank you all so very much for your kind comments. The grace of our Lord has been so apparent in all of this that we have been encouraged greatly to continue fervently in the race. We appreciate our friends who, keep their focus fixed on Christ and his fellowship rather than man, even in these comments. Grandpa Lauro would have loved this.
