Irma Velazquez’s Celebration of Life

On April 12, 2019, Irma suffered a massive heart attack and was airlifted from her home to Baptist Hospital in Miami. She went into cardiac arrest when she arrived at the hospital and was revived. Due to this, she was put under sedation. The day after, she began to experience organ failure at which point they had to begin dialysis to help her organs function again. Irma spent several weeks in the hospital, before being transferred to a rehab hospital. The day before Mother’s Day, Irma went to heaven. 

Those who knew Irma, knew of the beautiful person that she was inside and out. Her absence has been deeply felt by the many people who loved her. She left behind two children, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, who all miss her terribly and never expected to lose her this soon. They are in a position they never thought they’d be in. Goodbye came too soon. 

Thank you for the kind words of encouragement and all the prayers. They have made a difference. We want to give this family peace of mind while they grieve and lift some of the financial burden they have been left with. We ask for your help, all donations will go towards funeral expenses. Any little bit helps. Her daughter, Tomoe, will receive all donations. 

God bless you.
