Pepi’s Funeral Fund

Dear friends, family, and kind-hearted strangers,
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Jose Santiago (Pepi). He was a cherished son and brother who brought so much love and light into our lives. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

As we come to terms with Pepi’s passing, we are faced with the difficult task of arranging his final farewell. We want to give him the dignified and heartfelt send-off he deserves, but unfortunately, the financial burden of funeral expenses is overwhelming for our family during this already challenging time.

We are reaching out to our community for support in honoring Pepi’s memory. Any contribution, no matter how small, will help alleviate the financial strain and allow us to focus on grieving and remembering him fondly.

Funds raised will go towards all final expenses, such as funeral service, memorial arrangements and costs. Your generosity will make a meaningful difference in ensuring that Jose is laid to rest with the dignity and respect he deserve.

We also appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and messages of support during this difficult time. Your kindness means the world to us as we navigate through our grief.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity. Together, we can give Pepi the farewell he deserves.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Pepi’s Mom and Family
