These are the moments we dread and the trials that really test our faith. Although we may not
necessarily agree, we can take trust in the Lord that His time and plan for our lives is perfect.
Esther Fuentes Castillo, 58, was born on June 06, 1962 in Weslaco, TX to Juanita Resendiz and

and Leesa Castillo; Her brothers: Vicente Fuentes, Gilberto Fuentes, Jesus Fuentes, Aurelio

Esther was an expressive personality. “Tell it like it is” is the best way to put it. Esther always
spoke her mind and spoke the truth regardless if you liked it or not. She never meant it to hurt
you or bring you down but rather it came from a place of love and encouragement. Esther had a
funny bone in her as well; she enjoyed being silly with others or as she self-described “being an
ass”. Esther was definitely one of a kind and will be loved, cherished and remembered by so
many; Her impact on our lives will remain her legacy.
Esther, although your body was tired and you had so much more life to live; your soul was ready
for paradise. Oh but now! Not only do you get to rest with the Lord in the kingdom he has
prepared for those who trust and believe in Him but you will now be reunited with your son,
Daniel Castillo and husband Ruben Cornejo. We believe you’re up there having an amazing time
together and all we can do is be a little jelly! Do us a favor though Esther, meet us at those
pearly gates when it’s our turn. We love you and we will see eachother soon; so as only you
could say, “love much”, “Te quiero mucho. Dios te bendiga”, “bye girly”.
