Hey Everyone This is my first time writing on this since I opened the page about a month ago now. I am so amazed by how people can come together and help a family in need. That regardless of your own situation you can give to others because in your hearts you feel for them. I spoke to Hilda last night on the phone and it was lovely to hear her voice and hear the strength in her voice. I want to make sure to keep their personal space private, but I want all of you to know that have been asking that they are now on the road to recovery and healing. So please keep them in your prayers and in your hearts. Please continue to share and donate and help this page reach new heights. Once again I thank you all so much for all the hard work you have done.

This page is to benefit any costs the Malave family might acquire during this difficult time. I am doing this as a long time friend of the family. Due to a horrific accident while in Florida the family suffered one tragic untimely death of a child their son , and the rest of the family Mother Father and two sisters all injured needing surgeries. They will have many medical and funeral costs ahead and I hope I can reach out to all of you and help this lovely family any way possible. Thank you so much ahead of time for all your help and love in this difficult time.

Here is a link to the first news story of the crash :

I think about your family all the time. I can't get your faces out of my heart aches for you all and for your sweet boy. I am so sorry for your loss. That was a terrible accident that will never be understood. I am so sorry.

Any update on the family? Is there any way we can help back here in CP other than continuing to donate? Checking on their home, mowing the grass, pets, etc?

Even though i wasnt close to the family, ive seen them all around college point since i was younger, whether it was at st fidelis church or at a dance class. Prayers go out to the family and i pray for a quick and healthy recovery. In a time like this , money should be the last worry, its great to see the whole town get together to help in every way possible.

The words can't describe how I felt when I first heard the news. I cried for days. There is nothing you can say to make this situation better. I only pray and wish for God to give Hilda and her family strength to get thru this horrible ordeal as best as they can.

I am so proud of College Point and the businesses that have donated. Keep sharing the link... it may seem like a lot of money to some but it's not when you consider the long road ahead financially, physically and emotionally. Keep praying for this very special family.

As me and him knows that we are not friends at all ,he had tell jokes and make fun...But now the jokes and fun times are goon ,"If you pray more to Jesus and really belief in him...everything will be normal if you do that". Everyone need to face the right line to go through it.

You are a strong family. Yes the there will be tough days ahead. I can only pray that you get through each one as it comes. I lost my son 19 years at the age of 10 so I can truly say I feel some of what you and the family are going through. Our lives are tested everyday, the the loss of a child has to the worst for all of us no matter how old they are. Please send the Carlos, Hilda Aly and Melissa my love and support. Please let them know that I am here for them when and if they would like to talk. Just feeling so sad for all of you tonight. I know the money will never heal the pain but hope it will give them one less issue to deal with the expenses that will occur. Love and prayers to all of you.

You are all in my thoughts. I am also part of your community and know what lies ahead of you with the death of your child (I lost my 16yr old daughter 2yrs ago). Please know you can contact me anytime on fb if you need help or just want to vent. I wouldnt have made it this far without others that really understand.

The link below tells you about the family and the tragic events that have happen to them. In the article it talks about all you and really how all of your donations and support is simply a amazing thing. This wonderful family which i'm so proud to know are some of the best people I have met, Melissa and myself have been close friends for years and if you know the Malave family if your friends with one your friends with all of them. There strong ties as a family is simply beautiful thing. Also the link tells about the fundraiser that is being held in College Point tomorrow (4-6-2013) in there honor. k/20130405/college-point/colle ge-point-mourns-11-year-old-li ttle-leaguer-who-died-florida- crash?fb_comment_id=fbc_322233 49213696_1508846_3223616545342 13#f284b4fb2bdaf64
