Hello all! I have already received notifications of two chargebacks from WePay because some of you aren't recognizing the transactions on your bank records. I am not sure how it shows up (maybe WePay from another state), but GoFundMe should have sent emails regarding this. Please please do not dispute the charge if you donated. The family has been given the money, proof sent to GoFundMe, and now with the chargebacks the money is going out of my account. Thanks all!

Hi all, I've closed the campaign. Thank you all so very much for your support of Maria Victoria and Vicente' family. They are overwhelmed by all the love and support, and incredibly appreciative. The funeral will be held Monday, and I'll post details on our WAIH Facebook page. Thank you!-West Alabama Icehouse!

Hi all, I'll be closing the fund at noon today, as the funeral will be early next week and I need to get the family the funds. If you haven't yet donated, and care to do so, please do so by noon! I'll post funeral details on Facebook page (W Alabama Icehouse). Thanks!

GoFundMe is requesting that I share with you all and them how I plan to get the funds to Maria, in addition to my relationship to her, for safety reasons. I think I've been clear that she is a friend of the W Alabama Icehouse family, and I am an employee there. I plan to talk to her tomorrow and try to set it up to where she receives the money directly into her account. I can only do this if she has an email address and I'm not sure yet if she does. Otherwise I'll have the funds posted to my account and will give her a cashier's check. I'll keep everyone posted as to when she receives the funds.

I think some celebration is in order for nearly tripling the original goal of $5,000 in less than a day. What an amazing corner of the world to live in where people come out of the woodwork to support someone during such a hard time. Thanks to Lisa for setting up the campaign, to Tacos Tierra Caliente for their years of awesome service, and to the Ice House for their awesome staff and for giving me and my pup a place right around the corner to go have fun.

I met Maria when we opened one of the restaurants next door to her taco truck. She is an amazing kind lady and my heart goes out to her and her family as they are going through this difficult time.
