Bring Nacho Home

My father, my Apá, as I love to call him, was a man beyond measure. If you could begin to measure a man by the amount of people whose lives he positively impacted, then my Apá would be richer than the world’s most richest billionaire. Son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, father, grandfather, best friend, fighter, warrior--he was and always will be all those things.

My Apá was visiting family in Texas on August 25, 2018, doing the things he loved--LIVING life to the fullest-- when he suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. He fought bravely over the last two weeks, with his family by his side, to beat the odds stacked against him. Today, nuestro rey, has told us he is ready to leave us on earth, and watch over us with his father and other loved ones.

Although my Apá was prepared by having insurance and a funeral plan, no one could have foreseen this would happen 800 miles away from home. It will cost thousands of dollars to get him back to California, and there have been other unforeseen costs. We appreciate positive comments below, sharing #bringnachohome on social media, and donating what you can to help bring him back to the final resting place he chose. In his beloved California where he spent most of his life.

Mi padre, mi Apá, como me gusta llamarlo, era un hombre sin medida. Si pudieras comenzar a medir a un hombre por la cantidad de personas cuyas vidas impactó positivamente, entonces mi Apá sería más rico que el multimillonario más rico del mundo. Hijo, hermano, sobrino, primo, tío, padre, abuelo, mejor amigo, luchador, guerrero: él fue y siempre será todas esas cosas.

Mi Apá estaba visitando a su familia en El Paso, Texas el 25 de agosto de 2018, haciendo las cosas que amaba, vivir la vida al máximo, cuando sufrió una ruptura de un aneurisma cerebral. Luchó valientemente durante las últimas dos semanas, con su familia a su lado, para vencer las probabilidades que se acumulaban en su contra. Hoy, nuestro rey, nos ha dicho que está listo para dejarnos en la tierra y cuidar de nosotros con su padre y otros seres queridos.

Aunque mi Apá se preparó teniendo un seguro y un plan funerario, nadie podría haber previsto que esto ocurriría a 800 millas de distancia de su hogar. Costará miles de dólares devolverlo a California, y ha habido otros costos imprevistos. Agradecemos los comentarios positivos a continuación, compartimos #bringnachohome en las redes sociales y donando lo que puede para ayudarlo a regresar al lugar de descanso final que eligió. En su querida California, donde pasó la mayor parte de su vida.
