She was born March 24, 1957 in Hondo, Texas to Merced Becerra and Josefina (Rodriguez.)
As a young child Dina sang songs about Jesus. Less than 2 days prior to her death she sang these words to her long time favorite hymn in a soft yet 'on pitch' voice. "IN TIMES LIKE THESE' (Ruth Caye Jones) In times like these you need a Savior, In times like these you need a anchor; Be very sure, be very sure, Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock. This Rock is Jesus, Yes, He's the One; This Rock is Jesus, the only One. Be very sure, be very sure, Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.
Thank you Dina for sharing songs about Jesus, We'll see you in the Morning.
