Remembering Pelon

Yesterday we lost a member of our family way before his time. Eduardo Flores was unfortunately involved in an altercation that cost him his life. No one can prepare for this, not a brother, not an uncle, and especially not a parent. Pelon, as we all called him, was a bright young man. He had a big heart and a positive outlook in life.
 My nephew left behind his 1 year old son, Jay, and tons of family members who cared for him deeply. Seeing all this family at the ICU at one time proved just that. Enough to where we were actually told to move to different locations to allow room for other families! That is LOVE for you sobrino!
 We’ve set up this Go Fund Me to help my sister with the costs involved in sending him off the right way. All donations, if any, will go directly to these costs, medical, viewing, burial, his son, EVERYTHING. If you can find it in your hearts to help in ANY way, the family will extremely appreciate it. 
 Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and let’s show Peloncito, as my parents would call him, some Love. We love you Nephew!
