In memory of Alex Ochoa

Hello friends,

As some of you know, Karlena and Sergio suddenly lost Alex on Septemember 22nd. Those of you who know Karlena well understand what a loss this is for her- Alex and Karlena were incredibly close and relied on each other for everything. There are no words to express what a loss this is for Sergio, as well, losing his only son. Our hearts are with them and all who loved Alex.

We are doing our best to find ways to support Sergio and Karlena during this time. Clearly, a meaningful way to help is to aid in covering the unexpected costs that come with an unexpected loss. We have set up a GoFundMe page to facilitate this.  Any amount helps and will support Alex's celebration of life which will take place in a few weeks in Oceanside, CA. 

Thank you for your concern and willingness to help.  
Karlena is such a positive force of nature, loyal friend, and caring person.  Sergio is kind and loves his kids dearly. They both should know that they are surrounded by friends who love and support them during this time.
