Mi "Apa" , an Angel Among Us.

"Mi Apa" (my father),  was the  most hardworking, selfless, loving,  and respectful human being that I've ever known.  An amazing father, a devoted husband, and the best friend anyone can have- he was truly a great man. They say that wise men speak  but little, and listen twice as much-and that was my dad. Full of knowledge and wise advice, a compass in moral guidance. 

He was my role model in life,  even until he took his last breath.
On September 24, 2018, my father passed away after a long and courageous battle against cancer. He had been diagnosed in April with stomach cancer, and faced the biggest battle in his life head on- fighting with all his will for 5 months. He endured chemotherapy, various medical procedures, and excruciating pain- but he never lost heart. When time came for him to leave this earth, he left "a mi manera"- His Way!- which was fighting honorably until the end.   

Heaven gained a proud and fearless angel September 24th, and although he is gone, he will always be remembered.
It is with a heavy heart, and sincere humility, that I ask for your help in honoring my dad by donating in his honor so that my family can provide the burial services that he deserves. 

If you are able to donate, we thank you in advance. If you are unable to donate, we value and appreciate your thoughts and prayers just as much. God bless!
