Teresita Cortez Funeral Costs

This past weekend my dear friends Gabriela Sweningsen and Jesus Cortez (Stay True) lost their dear mother.  They are in need of funds to help pay for the funeral costs.  I know money is always tight.  But any little contribution helps.  If you have ever appreciated Stay True's poems or if you know the family.  Please give a little something.

Gabriela's note from Facebook:
I lost my Mother Sunday night, and I say lost because that's how I feel, like a lost child, like I am dying inside, like my heart is breaking in a thousands pieces, my Mama was always the strong one, she raised 9 kids, and many grandchildren, her heart was so full of love that she couldn't contain it, she loved every single one of her grandkids in a special way, and they felt it, the day my first one was born she was there for me to push me and have courage when I run out of it, when he was born she came to my bedside to kiss me and said " now you are going to understand how much I love you" , she has touched so many lives, because she was giving, loving and understanding, the world has lost a beautiful soul, until we find each other Mama, help me find your strength, Te Amo Teresita por siempre
