Abraham and Ashley Rubio

On January 20th, 2023 around 2am is a moment that shook many people. It has rocked so many friends and loved ones to their core. An incomprehensible tragedy that has so many in disbelief. We don’t have any words and definitely don’t have any actions to bring comfort during this time. So many of us are asking what can we do...Food? Flowers? Cards? Anything is better than nothing; please know that the Rubio’s and extended family need US! ALL OF US!!! Whatever you are moved to do, just act on it. Send a card, flowers, texts, food, prayers - if you feel it, do it.

We are sending this out because we are personally in absolute shock and were shaken when we heard the news. We can’t even fathom what Josh Rubio and his family are going through. Their lives, (our lives), have changed forever. They don’t even know what they need yet. Three kids without their parents instantly! Our hearts break so much just writing this. Absolutely nothing, not even Father Time, will make this emptiness go away.
We felt it necessary to start this page to begin a process of donations to Josh Rubio and his family. There is no target goal because who can put a goal on your Mom, Dad, Brother, Son, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Uncle? Whatever you feel motivated to give, please do. This is completely voluntary, and all amounts are equal in meaning & purpose.
If you have a story or thought that you would like to share, we encourage that you do so. This is a road ahead that doesn’t have an end. We just wanted to get this part of the journey started as soon as possible.

Many Love & Prayers to everyone!
-The E Crew
