Once again thank you all for your love and support. However sadly, I must inform you that Juan Rodriguez, my close friend of 11 years drowned yesterday in Cancun while trying to save the love of his life, Carlene who was caught in the water.
Fortunately, a few good samaritans were able to save Carlene in time but Juan's lungs were filled with water and they were unable to resuscitate him.
Juan Rodriguez passed away on May 29th, 2017.
On behalf of myself and for all who have ever met Juan, you can rest assured that he is the kindest, most honest and most loyal person you will ever meet. He has a big heart and he would have risked his life for anyone. I consider him to be a younger brother and I will miss him dearly.
If you or anyone you know would be so kind to help his family by donating whatever you can, we would greatly appreciate it. The amount itself is for Juan's preparation and transport from Mexico to the US and finally his funeral service in the Bronx. All collections will solely go to pay for the expenses and to help lift the burden from his family.
Thank you very much to all of you; our friends and family who has kept Juan in your thoughts and prayers and special thanks for your help as well! This is truly a blessing and a reminder that we are all here for each other.
Juan's Funeral Service will be held on Friday June 9th, from 3pm to 9pm at the Rivera Funeral Home on 1908 Bathgate ave, Bronx, NY 10457. The Father will arrive approx. from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
