Funeral and Burial costs for Juan Vazquez Alpizar

It's with deep sadness that I announce that our Dad, Juan Vazquez Alpizar, passed away Saturday June 20, 2020- the day before Father's Day. Words cannot describe the pain we feel right now. While everyone is out celebrating with their father we are planning our dad's last farewell.

He was a very hard working man who loved his family and always helped his family and friends.  He taught all of his children the value of hard work and dedication. He was a happy man with a huge heart, a beautiful smile, and a joyous laugh. A laugh that we will never hear again. He leaves behind our mom- Nicolasa Vasquez Albiter, two sons- Juan Vasquez Jr., Bernabe Vasquez, a daughter- Elisa Vasquez, and six grandchildren. He was a very loving husband, father, and grandfather. Aside from being our father he was also our great friend who we are going to miss deeply. 

We are asking for help to cover funeral and burial costs. He was the the sole financial provider for him and my mom. Aside from the heartache of losing our dad, we are now faced with the unexpected and unprepared funeral and burial costs on top of our pain. We are being faced with about $16,000 in expenses and need help covering the costs. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. We ask that you please share even if you can't donate. 
Con una gran tristeza annuncio que nuestro Padre, Juan Vazquez Alpizar, fallecio el 20 de junio del 2020- el dia antes del Dia del Padre. No hay palabras para describir el dolor que sentimos ahorita. Mientras todos estan festejando con su padre nosotros estamos planeando su ultima despedida.

El era un hombre muy trabajador quien amaba a su familia y siempre ayudaba a sus amigos y familiares. El le enseño a sus hijos e hija  el valor del trabajo y dedicacion. El era un hombre alegre con un corazon grande, hermosa sonrisa, y una risa jubilosa.  Una risa que nunca vamos a volver a escuchar. Deja atras a nuestra mama- Nicolasa Vasquez Albiter, dos hijos- Juan Vasquez Jr., Bernabe Vasquez, una hija- Elisa Vasquez, y sies nietos y nietas. El era un esposo, padre, y abuelo muy cariñoso. Aparte de ser nuestro padre tambien era un gran amigo a quien vamos a extrañar profundamente.

Estamos pidiendo ayuda para cubrir los gastos funebres y del sepelio. El era el unico provedor financiero para el y mi mama. Aparte del dolor de perder nuestro padre, ahora estamos vistos con gastos que no eran esperados y por los que no estabamos preparados. Estamos vistos con un gasto de como $16,000 y necesitamos ayuda para cubrir esa cuenta. Qualquier ayuda seria muy apreciada. Pedimos que por favor comparta nuestra peticion aun si no pueda dar una donacion.
