Family torn apart on Christmas

$3,105 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 4 months
Created December 26, 2017
*******As per GoFundMe I am to share a liitle about myself.
My name is Genevra Dommermuth, a close family friend. This money is to go towards Rafael Cepeda's funeral expenses and anything extra will go to Carmen, his 11 year old daughter. The money will be withdrawn by Rafael's sister to first help to pay for the funeral, any left over funeral expenses and then to be used or given to his daughter Carmen. ********
A father killed in the midst in senseless violence. They have left his daughter without her superhero, on Christmas. This is a horrible tragedy. Rafael Cepeda known to his friends and family as Ralphy or Nano was taken away Christmas evening during crossfire between two rival gangs. Anyone who knew Ralphy knows how much of a heart he had and how much he loved his daughter Carmen. Please help us raise money for the funeral so his family can send him back to the Dominican Republic and the extra money is so that we can pay for Carmen school expenses and just show her how much her father meant to us and to let her know we all love her.
