In Memory of Papi Chico

On Sunday July 22nd our beloved grandfather Francisco Larios "Papi Chico" disappeared from his son's Vista,Ca residence. Our Grandfather had suffered a recent stroke that had left him speech and hearing impaired. With no clear clue as to where he might have headed our family took action immediately and began to search for him in our community. Members of the "Armadillos Search and Rescue Group" and "Team Amber Rescue"  quickly reached out to our family to help us coordinate our search groups, search with us and provide tracking dogs to help us find our grandfather safe and sound. Unfortunately on July 26th our grandfather was found deceased. In his memory we have created this page to help provide funding for "The Armadillos Search and Rescue Group" and also for "Team Amber Rescue" on our grandfathers behalf. These are non-profit groups that help families in search and rescues free of charge and all members of both groups are volunteers. With the help of everyone we hope to be able to give a 50/50 split of all funds raised to both groups to be able to keep on helping families. Thank you everyone for your donations and God Bless!

El dia 22 de Julio nuestro querido abuelito Francisco Larios "Papi Chico" desaparecio de la casa de su hijo en Vista, Ca. Nuestro abuelito sufrio de un paro cardiaco receintemente  que le impedia hablar y escuchar bien. Si ninguna pista nuestra familia de imediato salio a buscarlo. Miembros de "Los Armadilos Search and Rescue Group" y de "Team Amber Rescue" imediatamente se comunicaron con nuestra familia para ayudar en nuestra busqueda. Desafortunadamente nuestro abuelito fue encontrado fallecido el dia 26 de Julio. En memoria de Papi Chico estamos recaudando fondos para "Los Armadillos Search and Rescue Group" y para "Team Amber Rescue". Estos dos grupos estan formados por voluntarios. Nos gustaria repartir el 50/50 de todos los fondos recaudados a ambos grupos. Asi ellos podran continuar ayunado a familias en necesidad. Muchisimas gracias a todos de corazon y Dios los bendiga!
