My heart is breaking as I write this.
Alberto Francisco Magaña was taken off life support Monday, June 20th and passed away Tuesday, June 21st surrounded by family who loved and cherished him. Alberto has been in the hospital since Mother's Day and sadly passed away after suffering from heart complications.
As Piedad, Beatris, Eddy, Ysabel and family are grieving, let's show our love by uplifting prayer for the family and taking a moment to remember Alberto, aka Berto, aka Beto, and all the wonderful memories that come to mind.
At this time, we also ask that you make a donation, if you can, to help cover medical bills and funeral costs that his mother, Piedad, will incur. As many of you know, Piedad is a strong, single mother, who loves her children unconditionally and has worked hard to provide for them. At the request of the family, we have started this go fund me page to help alleviate the monetary burden for her. I feel it's the least we can do for a grieving mother.
Growing up, Beto was my cousin, partner in crime and best friend. I'll love him forever. Although this is heartbreaking, this is not goodbye, but rather, until we meet again, cousin.

**If you are local to the Woodland/Vancouver area and would like to make a donation, or perhaps prefer to not use GoFund Me, please let me know and I can make arrangements with you. Thank you all so much.
