Manuel was a very calm, funny and hardworking guy. He was 25 years old who wanted to see and conquer the world and live life through his experiences and his camera lens. He was passionate about anything he put his mind to. Manny worked as a Lab Tech during the week and a videographer during the weekends, he wanted to help others capture their most beautiful and personal moments. He was a great dad to our five year old little girl and a loving son and brother. He was a victim of a homicide by his roommate and for reasons we will never understand since his roommate took his own life after murdering Manuel. No one has any idea why someone would do such a horrible thing to someone who always stayed out of trouble and had so much to give to this world. I am trying to raise funds for Manuel's funeral expenses to alleviate the costs of his funeral and memorial for his family. Funds will be given directly to his family to help cover funeral expenses. His life was ended so unexpectedly and his family yet will struggle for the next few weeks and months dealing with this tragedy and the expenses that come along with it. My heart is full of sadness for his family and for our little girl who admired everything about him. Please consider donating any amount you feel comfortable with, even if it's only a few dollars, to help them out and relieve on less stressor.
