Mar. 10, 2016 – Naco

On March 10, 2016, we placed a cross near the wall in Naco where our friend ELSA SANTILLAN GARCIA, age 37, passed on to new life.  Elsa’s husband Silvestre spent a week at the Migrant Center in Agua Prieta while he was waiting for Elsa’s body to be returned to Mexico.

This cross planting was a holy moment for all of us who came to know Elsa through our sharing with Silvestre.
This is an article called “Two Backpacks” written by Laura Stump, the former US Coordinator of the Migrant Resource Center, about Silvestre and Elsa.
