PAUL – Our sweet little angel, Jay James Martinez, was called back to Heaven surrounded by his loving family.

Jay was born on May 27, 2020, and passed away June 22,2020, due to complications of Trisomy 13. Though we didn’t have him long, we are so very blessed for the time we had. We are grateful for forever families. Jay touched many lives, especially his family and friends. He was brave, strong and a perfect spirit. During his brief visit on earth he was held close by his parents and grandparents. We will always love and cherish the days he blessed our family on earth.

From Ann Meier:
No greater joy comes into this world than a little bundle of love, but in such times no mere words can take away the pain that mother and all are feeling. I hope that amidst your tears you can find a measure of hope and comfort in God's promises. For God’s love is proved by His memory of your precious son, Jay, in every detail and if not one sparrow falls to the ground without His notice, certainly he will not forget your little Jay, nor His promises He holds out to all.—Matthew 10:29,31; John 5:28, 29, Revelation 21:4; Psalm 37:11, 29
