Castellanos Family Fire Recovery and Funeral Fund

Dear Friends and family,

 It is with great sadness that we start this GoFund Me page on behalf of the Castellanos family.

On February 4th, 2020 they suffered a terrible loss. A devastating fire destroyed the home of the Castellanos family. It took the lives of their beloved family members. The Castellanos family lost a great man, David Castellanos, known loving by many as “La Gaviota”, a loving husband, father, father-in- law and grandfather. They are also mourning the loss of David Castellanos III, loving known as “Junior” who will be terribly missed by his loving father, grandmother, uncles, aunts and cousins.

The fire also affected Susana Castellanos (daughter of David Castellanos), who lived on the first floor with her husband and children. The second floor is where David lived with his wife, his son and grandson. The home that Mr. Castellanos built for his family is destroyed with not only the material possessions but all the loving memories made in a lifetime.

Please consider joining us in a show of love and support for the Castellanos family by donating to their GoFund Me account.

We cannot bring back the two lives that were lost that night but we can help bring back some of the material things that they so desperately need as well as help with funeral arrangements and the transportation of Mr. Castellanos and his grandson to their final resting place in Mexico.

Thank you for you generosity towards the Castellanos family during this difficult time.

 

“A family is a circle of love, not broken by a loss, but made stronger by the memories. We are forever blessed that God connected us to you.” “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” “The loss is unmeasurable but so is the love left behind.”
