Hello everyone, As you may have heard from the news, my grandfather Valentine Herrera was recently attacked and seriously injured by two aggressive pitbulls. As the weeks have gone by, my grandfather has shown no signs of progress, so now after about 3 weeks of being in the hospital the doctors have told us that his brain is no longer functioning. The family and I have decided to let him go and rest, because we know he has been through so much. This gofundme account was made to seek out financial help for funeral expenses and medical bills that will be piling up. Just like my grandfather, we have a lot of pride and it bugs us to even have to ask for help, but due to other financial responsibilities, we do not have the income to support a funeral that my grandfather deserves. Valentine Herrera was and will always be a strong man with the best work ethic one may ever have seen. He spent most of his life waking up at 1:00 am to go to work at 2:00 am and get off at 10:00 am, all so that my family and I can have the life that we have in America. My family has gone from living in Mexico to being citizens in America, all because of him and his drive to want what is best for his family. He worked as a young man to pay for my father, grandma and aunt to come from Mexico to the States and I am forever grateful for his sacrafices, because without him I wouldn't be where i am today and neither would my family. So we ask that you help us with whatever you can and please keep him in your thoughts. He is one the greatest men I will ever have the privallege of getting to know and I am proud to call him my grandpa. Thank you.
