Jonathan Romero's funeral

His name is Jonathan Romero 24 years old. He died a hero rescuing my 10 year son. he was a hardworking kid who helped his single mother and siblings and didn't get out much. He was dating my daughter and in the little time i've known him, i grew to love him very much. he had an old soul and reminded me of myself and my made my daughter very happy. We all went to the beach today to enjoy the day together. He was playing with my son in the water while I was preparing the BBQ grill, when suddenly the waves or rip current took my kid farther out into the ocean, Jonathan being the closest to him tried to get to my son when he heard him screaming for help. He got to him and helped him out but the waves were getting atronger.. my daughter went after them but was tossed around by the waves.. when i heard her scream, i didnt see my boy or Jonathan. I ran fast to get to them but was unable to due to the waves pushing me back to shore. They were about a quarter mile out..when a paddle boarder and a surfer were able to reach them amd bring them back to the beach.. Jonathan was not breathing, his lips purple and eyes red..medics did everything they couldwhile on the way to the hoapital.  my kids were devestated but were alive and well. i created this fund me to assist his family with funeral cost as she's a single mother with his siblings to take care of. All proceeds will go to her.  any donation will be greatly appreciated and turned over to her.
