  1. I am praying to the family and family of Mrs. Orduna.
    It was a pressure meeting her for the first time a couple months ago and having the greatest conversation. She’s the sweetest lady i’ve ever met. May she rest peace and may god take care for her.

I am terribly saddened by the loss of “my first sister” here in the U.S. To each one of you Mike and family, and Lucy’s relatives – I am with you, I feel so down as Lucy was literally a very special lovable people.

  3. I’m truly heartbroken after hearing the unfortunate news. Mrs. Orduna always welcomed me and my sister into her life and home with open arms, no matter the time of day. She is one of the most down to earth and funniest women I have ever met in my life. As I continue to shed my tears of grief, I know that she is at peace and is being taken care of. May her spirit shine bright on her family and guide them through their grief. To the Ordunas: You guys are like family to me. I will keep you guys in my prayers always. I love y’all.

    To: Lucy,
    As I tried finding the words to write, there was this long pause. I just couldn’t .I lost it. I cried until my tears ran out, then started over again, then cried some more. It is hard to believe that you are gone… So soon.
    But in the midst of all this hurt and sadness, I find Peace and Comfort with GOD.
    Lucy, you are truly a good person, God fearing and a woman of Faith. You are beloved by everyone because of your genuine self, your kind heart and compassion. I will always treasure and cherish the good memories you left behind, the bond of friendship, our sisterhood with Miriam and Tess. You are like a sister to me. You, Mike and the kids are family to us .I remember we hit it off right away when we first worked together, 1992 at Memorial Hospital in Corpus Christi. Two Physical Therapists sharing the love for wound care. I have a lot of respect for you as a colleague because of your knowledge, your professionalism, your gentleness with everyone, the patients that you help get better all these years, and did I mention your good sense of humor that made everyone laugh. Years passed, our lives got busy with family , kids, work, yet you always found the time to reconnect with me , Miriam, Tess, and others. During the Covid Pandemic, we all got isolated from each other’s company. You managed to still connect with me whether it’s text, facetime or phone call. We confide and share each others worries, fears, excitements, about our families and kids, our jobs, even our aging bodies(hehehe) and also losing your Mom. I remember you were there for me when Papang passed away .You were on the phone with me trying to comfort me as I drove to Corpus then. We had the chance to get together again San Antonio with our families post pandemic because you said it’s time to do it again, Not knowing that it will be our last chance to get together with you. We planned to go to Georgia for Mandy’s wedding but you told us you were not able to go….
    GOD has given me the opportunity to visit with you at the hospital ,to be by your side and pray for you , to also pray for Mike and your kids. All your love ones and all your friends have been praying for you. I saw your face , your eyes were closed, I called your name softly, and you opened your eyes and saw your smile, you were in good spirit and you were trying to talk, I was reading your lips and you are saying thank you to me , and I just started crying and your lips were pointing to the Blessed Virgin Mary posted on the wall .You were throwing kisses with your lips. We talk about you getting better Lucy .You, going to Kindred and getting Rehab to recover . GOD had another plan .May You Rest in Peace with the LORD our GOD and SAVIOR.I know you’re happy to reunite with your Mom and Dad.
    I love you my dear friend . Your Spirit will be forever in our hearts.


    John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her: I Am the Resurrection and the Life, those who believe in me even though they die will live and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die .
