May 31st 2017
On May 31st, 2017 at approximately 9:08pm CST, 29 year old Gabriel Almaguer drove off the side of the road in the rain on his way from work and never made it home. His last conversation was with his son that very night, Facetiming with little Jackson and Amanda to say "good night" from work.
While his passing is tragic for everyone who had the honor of knowing him, this awful tragedy is especially heartbreaking because it left Amanda and their 2 year old son Jackson to grow old without him.
The Family's Dream
Gabe was THE best dad anyone could ever ask for and Amanda's very very best friend.
Their son Jackson was his whole world, and he would do absolutely anything for the little guy. This was apparent in everything he did.
We believe the greatest way to honor his memory and his wishes is by doing whatever we can to give Jackson a bright future and help Amanda with this transition however we can.
With humility and a thankful heart, we would love some help from our friends, family and community members to help lessen the financial burden this tragedy has put on Amanda & Jackson.
Based on the following numbers, we would love nothing more than to get Amanda & Jackson started with a 6 month cushion on daycare costs which would reduce the financial burden as she works toward transitioning into a higher paying job/career to support the two of them.
Any extra funds we receive will be put towards Jackson's education.
1) daycare costs for 1 month: $1,000 - $1,100
Total costs for 6 months financial daycare help:
$6,000 - $6,600
We understand this is a huge ask and we thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and love! Any donation is truly a blessing. Even just having you read our story is appreciated.
