In Memory of Eduardo Rivero
$40,591 of $30k goal
The beneficiary we put at this time is eduardos cousin stephanie alfonso and she will be giving all the proceeds to eduardos mother. (Mirta Diaz-Morin)
When I lost my mom and my sisters lost her kids all at one time it cost us Over 75 thousand to bury 4, funeral prep, casket, the grave site, burial vault , for them to dig the whole for then put the dirt back in, and services for the place that did the grave site, and that we got the church donated so YES it does cost a lot and I do see how 30 will be needed for everything and also for his family that will not be working for the next few days.. SO Amy if you never walked in these shoes please do not comment!
REALLY? $30k to "help" cover funeral expenses?! Today, the average North American traditional funeral costs between $7,000 and $10,000. This price range includes the services at the funeral home, burial in a cemetery, and the installation of a headstone. May the victims RIP, but really, $30k? I really hope you donate this money to charity!
Amy Sav this is a page for people with heart, for people who feel for others pain. Is not your problem how much money cost a funeral and nobody's who feel this losses. If you don't want to donate keep out of this page and keep your comments for you. We don't need it.
Amy Sav, you have obviously never lost a son! And that in wonderful, but you have no desire to breathe, move or live another day! Have you thought that maybe his poor mother may need to pay bills that come because of this like time off to grieve her son! If you have no heart then why did you even come to his gofund website, to trash the collected amount! Hope you never have to face such a horrific tragedy in your life
These families are grieving the loss of their loved ones and people are on here more concerned with how much is being donated instead of just being compassionate towards these people who are going thru the toughest thing they will probably ever have to go thru... If you don't want to donate DONT but go somewhere else with that negativity
Amy Sav, this particular young man, who lost his life so tragically was not a professional baseball player like Jose! You don't know what the family situation was! Why don't you crawl back under that rock! You don't know what that family plans to do with that money! Perhaps they will donate it back! You don't know them! Or do you?
Amy, This is a charity. It's going to a family who lost a loved one. I can't think of a better way for our community to get together and help a family whose world flipped upside down so quickly. You are what's wrong with the world. To take time and write that comment you must lack sensitivity and have hate in your heart.
My condolences to the family~praying for strength at this heart wrenching time. By the way Ms Sav this is not the time nor place to be discussing the cost of a funeral. However I just need to know what country you live in. Certainly not in the United States not that it matters but a wake and burial does NOT cost between $7 or $10k as you stated. Perhaps you should educated yourself and take your negative vibes elsewhere!
I agree Suzanne's Asst. What does it matter how much money has been raised and ho0w much it cost to bury someone. The reality I am sure of is that the family would give every cent back if they could have him. God had different plans and we should never question that. We should all be praying for peace for all of the families involved. What they do with what people are donating has no bearing on this tragedy.
Amy Sav really? who are you to question that? are you an accountant? is your money? Is not your problem how much money cost a funeral and nobody's who feel this losses. If you don't want to donate keep out of this page and keep your comments for you, donate what I could, and I don't care if you have money left after funeral expenses, these family are dealing with the sorrow of loss there loved ones, who care about money,
Amy Sav is completely insensitive and obviously has no clue what a family goes through when they lose a son...especially one so young. Maybe he still lived at home and helped his family with the monthly bills. Maybe he owed his family money. Maybe he shared credit cards with his family. The point is that it's none of your business Amy Sav. My thoughts and prayers are with these three families and I hope they raise $100K and do WHATEVER they need to do with the money. When you give you should not ask or question anything. Just give from the heart and leave it at that. I will still donate what I can even though they have already surpassed their goal. R.I.P. Eddy, Emilio and Jose. Godspeed!
Funerals are very expensive. My father was embalmed, then we picked a funeral package with coffin, hearse etc., and then entombed in a crypt as per his wishes. My costs for giving my father a dignified funeral was close to $27,000, with the crypt costs $9,900.00. On top of that I choose to have a private autopsy which was another $5,400. I never even thought of "gofundme", it's part of a family that lives to also prepare for dying and the final expenses. These three beautiful young men that lost their lives should be laid to rest in dignity. Personally I would not donate to funerals unless it's a family that all perish. But haters should not post derogatory statements of other who choose to donate. Just know it's pricey to die. Not all are comfortable with a quick cremation and the ashes in a box or urn somewhere in a closet. May they rest in peace.
7,000-10,000 is the normal cost for cremation. Not everyone wants to cremate their loved ones. Have a Heart, you cold B. You don't agree with what they are asking, fine. But no need to be rude. "Treat others how you would want to be treated". I guess you were never taught this!!!! Or how about this one, "If you don't have anything Nice to say, Don't say anything at all." God Bless the 3 Families going through this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. My husband comes from Hialeah.
Not trying to be insensitive but why dont the Marlins baseball organization donate enough to pay for both these fine young mens funerals. Seems to me they were out with Jose in his time of need for whatever reason and for whatever reason the tragedy of the boat accident happened. Surely Mr. Lorie could come up with $20 -40 thousand towards two nice funerals and it would be a nice charitible tax deduction as well. Just my two cents worth. Rip gentlemen.
Wow Amy Sav please go somewhere else with your nasty negativity! People like u shouldn't be allowed to speak or write at all! Wonder how u didn't break a finger as u were writting that awful comment so full of nothing but pure evil.. Others tell u they hope u never go through what this family is going through but I hope that when u do, and u will, u remember this family and what u wrote on here. Lastly I just wanna tell u that u are a piece of and if u ain't gonna donate, shut your mouth and go do something with that nasty heart of yours cause it's just trash!!
