Funeral expenses + Support for Rosa

With heavy heart, I am asking for you’re help. I find that I’m often too prideful to ask or accept help but I have found myself in a situation where I am left desperate. My father, Reno Andrew, unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday. I have been unable to make any arrangements thus far because he had no will, insurance or savings. My little sister Rosalina is only 9 years old and was very close to our father, as we all were. She is not only left devastated but is also left with very little financial support. She will be staying with a close family friend for the next few months and it is going to be very difficult both financially and emotionally. My greatest concern is being able to give my father a proper memorial service so that she can have the best possible closure and memory of him. I hope that our family is able to gather and exchange stories about the amazing person that he was. Anyone that knew our father knows that he had such a youthful soul. He was filed with so much energy and charisma that he commanded any room he walked into. Most of all he had the biggest heart and would not hesitate to give you the shirt off is back. Not only for just our family and friends but anyone who he crossed paths with. It deeply saddens me that she won’t be able to learn all the great wisdoms and lessons he instilled in me, but that is now my torch to pass down to her. Any donations would be more helpful than you could imagine. My father deserves a dignified service and I desperately want that for my sister as well. Even if you cannot donate please share. We are running out of time:(  All and any help will be greatly appreciated beyond words can express. Thank you for your love, support and condolences. 


RIP Daddy. You'll be in my heart, mind and mirror forever. I love you so much, I would do anything to have you back with us. <3 siempre y sienpre
