The Alvarado Family of Alicia's Tamales needs you

Mr Jose (Güicho) was always happy to help and always smiling at the fruit stand at Alicia's Tamales. The smile, joy and laughter he always gave to each and every one who visited the stand was always warm and would happiness happiness in a person. He was such a great man! As a father, all his kids were given the example of honesty, hard work, and sincerity. As a husband, he gave almost 30 years of his life to that hard working woman for which the stand had a name of (Alicia) A few days ago, he fell at home and hit his head so hard that caused a stroke. With no chance of survival, his family respected one of his well known wishes: Donate his organs to see if anyone else could be saved. His passing occurs right after the holidays, when sales are low at the stand and the only week they were able to meet ends is the week of selling tamales. To those of us whom he touched with his heart and actions, all I plead is to help during these hard times. Jose leaves a wife, his kids are all grown except for 1, and a fruit stand that meant life for the entire family. If unable to meet the family for a donation, please use this GoFundMe account as monies will be disbursed to Alicia. The bills will always come with memories of him. Lets return the favor of the unlimited happiness he always gave.
