funeral costs for my beloved brother

my dearest brother, Jose Guerra, was found dead in his home this afternoon. my brother made some mistakes that troubled the rest of his life. please dont judge my brother for his appearance or the life he lived, as most of us live our lives in some way misunderstood. i am reaching out to the public to help cover the funeral costs of this cruel tragedy because its not an easy thing to deal with on top of all the pain we feel from this loss.

Jose was the oldest of four siblings and he’ll forever live in our hearts. moving forward we want to encourage people to treat everyone equally, no matter what choices they make or how they look. thank you for taking the time to read our story. any donations are appreciated, both large and small. our family wishes you a blessed and healthy life. we urge you to always check in with the ones you love because you never know what might be going on in their heads. thank you once again.

the cost of the funeral and burial is roughly around $8000. legal, floral, suit, and food arrangements make up the remaining $2000 of our goal. we dont wish to burden you with numbers but it is important to us and the gofundme culture to be transparent about what these donations are going towards. our sister, Annabella Ramos, will be withdrawing the funds via Ruben Mojica's (her partner) bank account as she is the one responsible for all the arrangements. Ruben has no other involvement other than providing us with an active bank account to withdraw all the (very appreciated) funds.
