Memorial fund for Joe Marquez





My family is grieving the loss of a brother, a son, a cousin, and friend. My brother Joe was an unique soul who was taken away from us far too early. He was never afraid to be who he was, gay and fabulous. He always put the feelings and needs of someone else before his own. He was the life of the party and could always crack a joke despite the situation. He brighten every room he walked into and put a smile on every face. Although the miracle wasn't him coming back to us it was the miracle of him giving a second chance to those who are in need of an organ. As for now he was able to donate his loving heart to a heart transplant recipient the very same day he passed and was a perfect match to donate a kidney to his very own cousin sabrina. In this time of grieving we are asking our family and friends to help us raise money so we can have a proper burial set for a "bad bitch". Anything will help and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you!
