Memories of Valeria


 "A very generous friend and very selfless." Valeria certainly was a good friend, because she sought her friends' good.

While we were there, Valeria was very present. There was peace, and we felt as if she was smiling at us.

Valeria, Marta y Almudena

Sr. Merly Alcibar, SHM:  One day when a Sister came into the classroom, it was as if everything stopped around her, and she wanted to yell out to her classmates that God had called her to be one of them.

Hna. Merly

Sr. Merly Alcibar, SHM:  She never slackened in her commitments. She was a soul in love with the Heart of Jesus.

On May 14th, 2015, Valeria celebrated her last birthday here on earth. She turned 15. Her friends made her this simple video as a gift.
