I can truly say that he was a MAN OF GOD and a true friend. Arturo leaves behind a mother, father, and sister that reside in Mexico. I know that he is today in God's presence; we miss you and today the world lost a great man.

THe Lord is good and faithful.

Arturo was one of the finest young man of Comunidad de las Americas, a Spanish division of Lake Ave. Church.
He really loved the Lord and serve him in any opportunity he had. He was always helping people and he was involved in all activities of the church.
He was an inspiration to many of us, and some people were saved thru his testimony.
He really lived a christian life even when he was so young.
Every Sunday worship services, he sat in the pew in front of me. I still can hear his voice singing praises to the Lord with all his heart . I closed my eyes and remember him lifting hands in adoration, and I smile just to think that now he is seeing his Lord face to face.
He is going to be missed by many of us who loved him.
I thank God that gave me the opportunity to meet him and know him.

Arturo will be dearly missed. He was one of the nicest and kindest individuals we have ever met. He loved the Lord with all of his heart, and was a great role model to all the young and old in the church. Saturdays will not be the same without him, but we find comfort knowing he is where he wanted to be...Heaven.

Although I did not know Arturo the many people who did only speak good about him. That is truly an honor to leave behind good spirits in everyone. I can only imagine the hurt to have lost such a great person. My prayers and thoughts are with him and his loved ones today and always.
