A rosary is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013, at Ballard Chapel for Sergio Lerma, 3. Mass is scheduled for 10 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013, at St. John’s Catholic Church. Burial will follow at South Park Cemetery.
Sergio passed on Feb. 13, 2013. Three years were not enough for Sergio to share all the love in his heart. Sergio had so many things he was going to accomplish. He enjoyed spending time with his grandparents in Hondo. In our minds, we see Sergio playing with all his balls and toys. He couldn’t leave the store without a ball in his hands.
Sergio was born Oct. 7, 2009, in Roswell, to Alejandro and Maria (Rodriguez) Lerma who survive him at the family home in Roswell.
He is also survived by his brother Alejandro Jr.; his twin brother Eduardo; sister Ruby; grandparents, Manuela and Antonio Lerma and Griselda and Juan Rodriguez; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many people who got to know him and love him. Also left to cherish his memory are his godparents, Ramona and Juan Chacon. He was a very happy and active child and full of life.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory. An online registry can be accessed at ballardfuneralhome.com.
No words I write could ever say how sad and empty we feel today.
The Angels came for you much sooner than we planned.
We will brave the bitter grief that comes and we will
try our best to understand.
Sergio will always be in our hearts.
