Help With Funeral Cost

Good morning/afternoon. As you all know, we lost a son, brother, father, good friend and boyfriend name Gabriel I. Silva AKA "Bio/October's Own" in Lincoln Hospital at 2:29am on August 18th, 2018 at the age of 33. This was an unexpected death. We are all very devastated and saddened by his passing. He was a loving father to his son, Damian Silva. He was a great son to his parents, Rebecca & Angel. He was a good boyfriend to his lovely girlfriend, Elsie DeJesus. He was a great brother to his 6 siblings. He will be surely missed for the rest of our lives. :-(    We want to say Thank You for those who came to the Hospital and said their last Good-Byes. For those that couldn't, we truly understand-since this was so unexpected. 

We are starting this GoFundMe page for some help for the funeral expenses. The cost is $7,445. We have most of the funds except for $2,900. Whatever you can donate will be greatly appreciated. If all goes according to plan, the funeral will be on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 at Ortiz Funeral Homes located at: 2121 Westchester Ave, Bronx NY from 4pm-9pm and Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018 from 10am-1pm. We will keep you posted of any changes (if any). Thank you in advance and God Bless You.
