Send Edgar's Body Back to Guatemala

Edgar died on Friday, March 2, 2018. He was only 31 years old. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer back in December. Unfortunately it had progressed and the doctor's at MGH in Boston were unable to save him.

Edgar was truly a great person. He would help anyone who asked. He was strong and yet a gentle soul. We lost him far too early.

Edgar is from Guatemala. His mother wishes to have his body returned home to Guatemala for burial. However, it is extremely expensive. 

The funds are needed ASAP, for obvious reasons.

The funds will be managed by Edgar's uncle, who lives in the Boston area where Edgar had been living since he was 19 years old.
