In Memory of Giovanni Alvarez

Donation protected
Giovanni Alvarez was taken from us on November 23, 2014. A single bullet to the head, two days prior, ended Gio's life at the early age of 21. 

There is a sense of stillness everywhere; an unusual silence that words cannot describe. His presence is missed by more loved ones than he will ever know. 
Giovanni's contagious laughter, loyalty, and laid back aura touched so many people.  I wish he could see how many people truly LOVE him. He left memories of all shades that no-one can ever take! Please do not hesitate to take a moment and share yours; we would love to hear them & keep his memory alive.

"This was not a coincidence, this was God's plan," said Pastor Varella at his bedside. I will not question God's decision to take him so soon; but I will make sure his life was not taken in vein. Something good will come of this. 

At this time our family is trying to raise funds for his memorial service and would like to leave this open to anyone who would like to contribute.  Please do not feel obligated to give what you may not have; every little bit helps. Bless all of you for all the prayers and love you have shown for our family.

A piece of Gio was left behind; his pride and joy Little Giovanni Jr. I know God will provide and rest assure that the remaining funds will be put in an account for his son to access when he gets older.

Please take the time to cherish your loved ones; hold them tight and make every moment count. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
