Most of you know by now that our mother, Arcelia Martinez Hernandez passed away on Saturday, April 30, 2016. It is a great loss to so many she left behind... and she left behind many.
For those of you who knew her, her strength was tremendous... but her heart, the way she gave and loved unconditionally was probably what touched us the most. We, her children our honored we were able to call her mother for the years we were given.
Over the years we witnessed something absolutely beautiful... we got to witness how God's power can heal and transform, and give life. The way she lived, and the way she loved in response to what God gave her, has been the greatest gift she could have ever left us. She persevered to the very end.
Tomorrow evening, a wonderful group of people she ministered faithfully to at her church, through counseling and loving friendship are holding a memorial service for her. You are gladly welcome to join. It will be a time of honoring who she was, celebrating the way she loved and lived ~ in the ministry she was most passionate about her last days here.
It will be held at Highpoint Assembly in Red Bluff, California at 7pm.
We were sadly not prepared for this loss, and if you are able to support our family during this time with contributing towards the varied costs of her passing, it would be a huge help to us now.
Thank you all in advance, and God bless you.
Love her babies...
David, Cecily and April Arica
