Carlos Ortega Funeral Fund

My cousin Carlos Daniel Ortega Gutierrez. He was 20 years old, working two jobs and going to school. He only had 4 months until he was going to graduate from Nascar Technical Institute. His dream was to become a mechanic and own his shop. Carlos was the most humble person you could ever meet. He's always wanted to work hard and always supported everyone who needed help. Carlos was my cousin, who pulled me out of my depression and we spent every day together. I was with him on Friday night we had gone to eat and were cruising around hwy 70. He was my best friend and my rock. Every decision I ever made was with Carlos. With the money that is raised, he will be sent to Mexico to be with his mother. I am Nancy Gutierrez-Medina, I was his closest cousin, friend, and his number one supporter. I do want to thank everyone who is helping me through his tough time and I want to thank everyone who is helping me with everything in order.
