One of her favorite scriptures is Psalm 23. “23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.[a]3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell[f] in the house of the Lord forever.” A memorial service for Teresa Aguirre is scheduled for Friday, February 25, 2022 at 9:30am at Christian Cultural Center, 12020 Flatlands Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11207.
