The Benitez Family Fund

On the night of the massive Montecito floods, my dear gardener's  sister, Faviola Benitez, her two sons, husband and little 3 year old niece, Kailly Benitez and her mother, Marilyn Ramos, were horribly impacted. Her husband and youngest son were rescued and taken to the hospital in critical condition, and Faviola has not yet been found. Sadly, little 10 year old Jonathan and 3 year old Kailly Benitez, perished. The family is bereft and unable to work with the overwhelming loss. I'm reaching out to see if there is anyone out there able to help them with their massive hospital bills and living expenses to get them through this devastating time. Please keep them in your prayers. I have known Alex and Santiago Benitez for three years.
