Antonio Padilla Final Expenses

Dear friends and family, our father, Antonio Padilla, made his departure from this Earth on Friday, April 20th. His transition was peaceful. He was at home, surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife, 3 children and 9 grandchildren.

This campaign is to raise funds to cover his final expenses and to help with some of the relocation costs for his wife, Armida Padilla.

Antonio and Armida were married for almost 50 years. We were looking forward to celebrating this milestone in July, but unfortunately, life had other plans for us.

As some of you may know, our mother suffered some devastating strokes back in 2004. Our father was her primary caretaker. They both received a lot of support from their son, Tony. After Tony welcomed his son in January 2017, it became ever more difficult for him to split his attention between his parents and his little family. We have decided that the time has come for Tony to pass the torch. Clarissa will be stepping up to be mom's primary caretaker. After careful consideration, we have decided that it would be best if we moved mom up to Modesto, where Maritza and her family live. This will provide us with a much greater level of support.

If you are reading this and are in a position where you can help financially, know that every bit helps and is greatly appreciated. If you are unable to provide financial support at this time, please share this campaign with others that may be able to help. We would greatly appreciate if you all kept us in your thoughts/prayers during this difficult time of change.
