Francisco Arriaga Memorial

Dearest friends and family members,

It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that Francisco (Sansón) Arriaga passed away peacefully on Saturday 12/19/2020.

Some of you have reached out and asked how you can help us during this time. Know that your kindness is much appreciated as we navigate this heartbreaking moment. We kindly ask, if you are able to, to donate funds towards the funeral service, and transporting him back home to Mexico.

"Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much."

Thank you again for supporting us during this time.

I am and always will be your friend,
