ELIA G. BETANCOURT
LAREDO - On August 7, 2020 at 7:57pm in San Antonio, the good Lord has called back one of his very own sweet angels. In a peaceful sleep, Elia G. Betancourt (82) went home to be with her Lord and Savior. Our collective hearts are broken, and our very souls are filled with much sadness as you are no longer here with us. Tears will continue to be shed but they will eventually give way to smiles as we reminisce of our past days with you. Your love for all of us was endless and your devotion was constant. The feel of your gentle hands when we were sick or your hugs when we would see each other after a long time apart can never be replaced. It has been said that the ones we truly have loved in life never actually go away but rather they are just unseen and unheard as they continue to walk with us on our own journeys in life. Mom, although you are no longer here with us know that you will be forever loved and forever missed yesterday, today and tomorrow. Until we see you again. We will always love you.
God, thank you for blessing us with the most beautiful, wonderful, caring, and funniest mom in the world.
