Mario's family was his greatest joy

On Thursday, September 13th, Mario Hernandez, a loving father, tragically lost his life.
Mario was doing what he knew well and also loved—he was tending to the garden of a family’s home when tragedy struck. He accidentally fell from a ladder while trimming a hedge. Sadly, he died instantly.
Mario, just 32 years old, leaves behind his two children ages 4 and 10, his parents and many other family members.
I am reaching out to you today, to help provide funds for Mario’s family to meet their immediate needs. Your kindness and generosity will be a blessing for Mario’s family. All donations will go to cover funeral costs and other expenses in the coming weeks and also to Mario’s two children. They will be deeply grateful for any amount you can give at this tragic time. Thank you.
