In Loving Memory of Adrian Hernandez

Donation protected

Hello family and friends. My name is Erika Hernandez and I am here to tell you a brief story about my brother in law Adrian Hernandez. Adrian was born and raised in Mexico, Libres, Puebla in a small town called Allende on September 8th, 1981. At nearly a young age he became a father to two beautiful children Who are born and raised in Mexico as well. He had ups and down with the mother of his kids so they took separate ways. Leaving his kids with his mother Gilberta Lopez and being raised by her. My nephews were raised by their grandmother. He came to the United States for a better life and to give his kids a better life! He was such an amazing father to his kids and not to mention an amazing uncle to our daughter Kelly Hernandez. Adrian was also a brother, a son, a dad and uncle a cousin a friend and a grandfather. May he rest in peace now. ❤️

My mother in law has 11 amazing children and unfortunately 2 passed away at months being born and now she lost one more Adrian. Adrian was just 39years old, very hard working, a loving man with all his heart, never did he deny not one cent to nobody. He worked at CARMINE’S ITALIAN RESTAURANT @ the heart of TIMES SQUARE, NY. As well his previous job in VIRGILS REAL BARBECUE, sister restaurant of Carmines. He has helped many and chose to never ask anything back. Unfortunately Adrian passed away due to Covid-19 with a very severe infection in his lungs which caused him to get pneumonia. The day he was being intubated and ventilated at Woodhull Hospital it was very sad news to us because we kept calling and asking how he was doing. His doctors were wonderful and kept us updated. They told us he was stable but stable which way. They had him asleep taking at least 2-4 medications a day, antibiotics and vitamins. We prayed for him day and night and hoping he will make it back to us, his family, his mom one day, April 2, 2020 at nearly 9pm we gave a call to check up on him and we recieved the devastating news that Adrian had passed way. Doctors did everything they could to keep him alive even on life support but Adrian wasn’t fighting this war against Coronavirus(Covid-19) anymore. We are asking you, family a friends to please help us with funeral funds and arrangements being made in Mexico for his mom Gilberta Lopez Aguilar and dad Alfredo Hernandez Martinez my father in law and my mother in law. We want Adrian to be sent to Mexico where most of his family is so he can be burried in his National Home Country. We appreciate all the people who helped Adrian thru his journey, who checked up on us throughout this week and reaching out to his brother my husband Ricardo Hernandez to see how Adrian was doing, THANK YOU SO MUCH and remember A little can go a long way!
