Funeral, Elias Valdez

Last night,  my friend Elias Valdez died unexpectedly as doctors tried to save his life. He was only 15 years of age, and he leaves behind his grieving parents and sisters.  He had barely finished his freshman year of high school and had plans of becoming a barber in the future. All his friends knew him to be genuine and down to earth, so his death is very saddening. Donations will be used by the family to cover Elias' funeral expenses. Elias's body is in the hospital morgue and needs to be delivered to the funeral house in the next two or three days. 

Anoche, mi amigo Elias Valdez murio inesperadamente mientras doctores intentaron salvar su vida. Solo tenia 15 años de edad, y deja a sus padres y hermanas entristecidos. Apenas habia terminado su primer ano de high school y tenia planes de ser peluquero en el futuro. Sus amigos lo conocian como una persona sincera y amistosa, y por eso ellos tambien se sienten muy tristes. Las donaciones seran usadas por su familia para cubrir los gastos funerales. El cuerpo de Elias esta en el morgue del hospital y necesita ser entregado a la funeraria en los siguientos dos o tres dias.

For clarification, the beneficiary listed is the mother.
