Heaven Has A New Angel
Our Dad was a very special man. He was a quiet gentle man that always took care of his family.  He was a hard worker until he had to retire because of his illness. He loved his job and enjoyed doing things for others.

Dad never told us how to raise our children or live our lives, but he showed us by the way he treated us and our children and how he lived his life.

His greatest joy in life was his family. He always enjoyed having his children and grandchildren around. We will always remember all the great memories we made with him.

For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
And whispered come to me.

With tearful eyes we watched you
And saw you pass away,
And though we
loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest,
He only takes the best.

“Special thanks to all our family and friends for everything you have done for us and our Dad. “
The Martinez Family
