Placido's Funeral Service and Family

First and foremost thank you for taking your time to read this. As some of you know, I lost my father, on April 4th, 2020. He was a dad to a 23 and 17 year old, a 7 month old and a partner to my mom for 28 years. He was and still is one of the most important people in my life. Everyone who got to meet him knew that he was a loving, caring, charismatic, and humble person. I miss him more each day, as these couple of days have been the hardest in my life. I have countless stories and memories with him that will never abandon me or my family. He was who I admired the most, and always made my day with his infectious laugh and jokes. He was the main source of income in my family, and because of the current situation of COVID-19, it's been difficult for my family to raise the money needed to give my dad a proper funeral, especially because they are so expensive. We also need resources for my little sister's necessities, my future college education, and expenses. It will mean the world to us if you would please donate, no amount is too big or small. I know that this is a challenge in my life that will make me come out stronger. And as my padrino said, God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. This is not a goodbye, but see you later. I love you papi y siempre te vamos a recordar. -Melissa Franco
