Everyone that loved JC Madrid

If you ever met Jc you know that the first memory that comes to your mind , is his smile. Nobody was happier than our beloved Jc, and nobody was unhappier than him . He suffered from depression, he struggled a lot with his own monsters . He told me once he had a clown face , happy on the outside, sad under the makeup. But he still managed to help others, he still managed to give anyone a positive advice, he would fight over any injustice, he would defend any living thing in this world that needed help..
He was so self -sacrificing he wouldn’t ask for help.. and he didn’t, he hid from everyone that loved him, he pushed everyone away when he needed us the most, he didn’t want anyone to suffer, specially because of him .
Sadly ,he was trapped on a very strong depression after loosing the only job that he was able to keep throughout the years, the only job that would understand when he was dealing with those moments. He struggled here and there to get and keep a job , but couldn’t. He gave up, nobody knew where he was , the roommates he had didn’t know what was going on behind his walls , he was so depressed and out of money that he let himself down , he got so weak he couldn’t even get up. He got a virus on his brain , when they found him , it was too late. Doctors couldn’t do anything, it was just a matter of days.. he is now our Angel, he is now free .. no more pain or suffering. Like Kate said, we know he is up there shaking up his butt and dancing, he’s probably the soul of the party wherever is at. And we know he has a big smile !
We will miss you dear friend .

JC didn’t have any family here, his grandmother who was the one that raised him , lives in their natal Honduras . She’s an old sweet lady that never saw him again , she misses him dearly and the only wish she has is to have him back to her. Jc will be cremated and we need to raise money to send his ashes back home with his granny. If we are able to raise any extra money , anything left will be donated to the rescue that took his puppies in. They are recovering from the unhealthy situation they were found . Chulo is doing very well but Bella was diagnosed with Neumonía and she needs medical attention. They are under foster care through this wonderful organization called Lone Star shih -tzu rescue . Once they are totally recovered they will be up to adoption. So they also need our help!
Many of us knew Jc , all of us loved him ! There’s probably not one single person that doesn’t have an amazing memory of him . He needs us ! Let’s make this happen!
