Absolutely Gospel Music sends our prayers and condolences out to the Cerce Family during this time.

“ This morning at 4:00 a.m., my husband Cliff Cerce passed away. He was in the Rehab Center where he was working hard to walk again. January 11, 2023 he twisted his knee, ripping out all of his cartilage. After 3 weeks being bed ridden,he went to the hospital and was either in the hospital or Rehab Center since February 2, 2023. He developed pneumonia and some fluid on his lungs in the last couple of days and I guess his body was not able to take the stress any longer. What I do know is God was ready for him and He called Cliff home. Please keep me and all the family in your prayers. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through but he’s not suffering anymore. God is already using my dear friends to watch over me. Thank you all for your prayers.”
