The death of my mom opened up the same wound our family has been trying to heal from, since the loss of my brother Jonathan Cruz a year and a half ago and the loss of my Aunt about 5 months ago. Like my Mother, all passed away unexpectedly which left us to fight and dig ourselves out of a living nightmare.
Our finances has taken a turn for the worse and this is why we are turning to you to help us cover my mom's Funeral expenses and also support my brother to get back on his feet. My brother fought very hard to keep my mom alive until her last breath. She JUST had recovered from a rare skin condition and Doctors were slowly weening her off medications. During my moms recovery, Alex stood home with her to meet all of her needs. She made great progress, everything was going well until a sudden episode that lead to her passing. This has left Alex distraught trying to fight the pain a little bit at a time wondering why God allowed this to happen. Her caused of death is still unknown, I signed off for an autopsy and will have more answers once it's complete.
We want to thank all for your condolences, your love, your prayers, your support, your words of encouragement, and any funds you contribute for this cause.
God bless us all and let us "Be Light" in our walk in life.
Rest in Peace Mom ❤
Forever in our hearts.
