PLEASE HELP US BURY MARIO WOODS
On December 2, 2015 on or around about 4:30pm, the SFPD shot and brutally killed my son Mario Woods. Mario was a very outgoing, passionate and self-motivated young man. Mario was a charm to his family and everyone that he came in contact with. He had a way of helping people when and where he could.
Living in a low income community, Mario faced many obstacles which he was able to overcome. Three years ago, I noticed my son suffered from severe depression and mental health issues; something also not well represented in our community. As a mother, I worked around the clock to get my son the help he needed; to no avail.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the death of my son, I am still charged with resting his body. Currently I am without means so I’m reaching out with the help of GO Fund Me, strangers, family and friends for help to cover funeral expenses.
No contribution is too small…..
Thanks in Advance
The Woods Family
With your support, we were able to lay Mario to rest in a peaceful and respectful manner. Again, I can't thank all the Wood's supporters enough.
All Lives Matter.......
The Woods Family
My name is Keisha Perkins and Gwendolyn Woods, Mario Woods’ mother has appointed me to help assist her with the burial of her son. This is a very difficult and trying time for Mrs. Woods, so my role is to help lift any barriers she has or burdens she cannot handle.
The family and I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. All the donations that are raised will go straight to the burial of Mario Woods. The total burial cost is $20,000. The funeral home quote is $6,600. The Cemetery plot is $6,500 just for the plot and an additional $3,900 for the vault and opening & closing of the ground. We also have a $3,500 quote for the repast space, food and programs.
You may know this or you may not, but this is a very highly profiled case, which has received a lot of attention and support Nationwide and we the family, want to be able to accommodate as many supporters, friends and family as we can.
In closing, we would like to thank you for your assistance during this process and we would also like to thank all of the donors for their prayers and support. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers during this time of bereavement.
ALL LIVES MATTER,
THE WOODS FAMILY
As a mother who lost her youngest child, I can't fathom the thought of arranging his burial. The SFPD, who were suppose to serve and protect, are the same people who shot and brutally killed my son. I carry a very heavy and broken heart with the lost of my baby boy. To add, the additional stress of not having the financial means to bury him properly.
Can you please share this with your network of friends in hopes to have this tragedy reach a wider awareness.
All my love to Mario's family and friends. Remember us if you need additional support in the months and years to come. Justice for Mario will result in a better San Francisco for everyone.
Morgan Manos.... you are pathetic and u are going to hell. I love mario to the moon and back and his mother did a great job raising him. Rest in power lil daddie.
The world needs less people like below, "Morgan Manos" You fuckin douche bag! Please accept my sincere sympathy on this tragic loss. No doubt this sad event has been very disturbing for you and for the many other people who knew and cared for him. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
