Memorial Fundraiser For Carlos

My name is Gabriela Ruiz. This is my stepdad Carlos. A US Air Force veteran. This man right here is one of the strongest men I've ever met. He passed away August 8th, 2017. He suffered a fall which caused him to get seizures which later caused him to get bleeding and swelling in his brain. He fought for his life and got better to the point where he was able to spend time with his children while in the hospital. A few days later he fell Into a coma, which ended up with the doctors telling us there was nothing more they could do. They took the tubes out and he remained fighting for his life. He passed away 10 hours later. Our family and friends are devastated as he left behind a strong woman (my mom) a 17 year old son, and a 7 year old daughter. We thank God for the life he had and for the man he was. For the man he'll continue to be in heaven. We know deep in our hearts he's our fallen angel and he'll continue to watch over us. We're preparing everything for the visitation and for the burial. It'd be helpful for you to help us raise money to help pay for any extra funeral expenses and to help pay for anything my mom and my sister may need. Any amount is appreciated. Please continue to pray for our family as we go through this difficult moment in our lives.
