Help Support the Almazan Family

My uncle Jose Almazan passed on  Friday, April 10, 2020 (Good Friday) due to Covid-19.  He was a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend who touched the lives of those around him. He leaves behind his heartbroken wife Froyla, son Edwin (currently in the hospital in an induced coma due to the coronavirus), daughters Eloisa and Alejandra.

Jose dedicated his life to his family and his restaurant. Many of you may know him from the Little Mexican Cafe a staple family-owned restaurant in New Rochelle for over 30 years.  He was such a kind man that would give you the shirt off his back, my uncle kept our family together he was so proud of our ALMAZAN FAMILIA. I will find some comfort knowing that he lived a good life.

We are all devastated by my uncle's loss and under the circumstances, I'm not prepared to ask my aunt for money for funeral arrangements (which at this point I don't know what that will look like under these current unprecedented times). As soon as we are able to we want to give Jose the memorial he deserves, to honor his memory and LIFE.

I am currently asking for help to cover the cost of my uncle’s funeral arrangements and to help get the restaurant up and running once this is all over. We need to raise money to be able to lessen the burden on my aunt for a funeral and to keep the restaurant going for my cousin and the many loyal employees that have been with them for many years. 

Here is a link to the fundraiser for Jose Almazan http://gofundme.com/f/almazan-family. Please consider donating, as any amount will truly help our family during this difficult time. Most importantly we welcome prayers for my cousin Edwin to get out of the hospital to comfort his mom.

With much love,
Nancy Scovotti
