DEAR ROSALIE, SYLVIA AND RAY,
Words cannot express the heartfelt sorrow for your loss from many of us here in Brawley. Hermano Acevedo will be missed by many. He touched and helped so many souls here in Brawley by his tireless work for the Lord and lived a full and meaningful life. He made so many things possible to so many when there was no hope. We have the highest respect for the Acevedo Family and my fondest of memories of all of you children and Hermana Acevedo, your wonderful mother will forever have a special place in my heart.
Just last month we also lost Bernice Lucio, a dear and beloved elder member of The 1ST Mexican Baptist Church. I can see many of our deceased elders rejoicing in heaven at having your father with them once again and that’s definitely including my own grandparents, Brijida and Francisco Murillo. Your family has always been in our fondest of conversations when we talk about our childhood memories in our beloved church. The Acevedo Family has always been respected and greatly missed by all in Brawley. Again, we are sorry for your loss but what a heavenly gain it is! My prayers and thoughts are definitely with all of you at this time. Miss and love you all.
