Support Richard's Legacy: keep LaPrensa Newspaper Publishing

Donation protected
As we grieve for our father Richard (Rico) Neller, the public outreach and unbelievable amount of support has been very comforting. In fact, your support has inspired us to keep LaPrensa Newspaper going strong to make sure that our father's legacy lives on. Our Editor is working on next week's publication as I type.
LaPrensa newspaper was established in 1989 and has remained Toledo's number one bilingual Hispanic newspaper, which you are able to find both in print (free) and an online subscriptions. In addition to publishing the newspaper, our father was also the founder of LatinoFest@ Promenade Park, which brought in artists such as Ramon Ayala, lil Joe, Mazz, Vicente Fernandez, la name a few. Rico also started the Tejano music awards in Downtown Toledo and the Mud Hens Latino Scholarship fund. While Richard was a skillful trial attorney, his heart was with the Hispanic community.
Richard (Rico) struggled with congestive heart failure over the past five years, but never missed a deadline. He frustrated doctors when he wouldn't move the laptop during very important physicals. The last 12 months were a huge financial struggle for him, and he was too proud to ask for help. As a family we are gathering together to do what we can to help continue his legacy--we refuse to give up his passion--you!! In lieu of flowers, we humbly request donations to help us to get the paper back on track. Thank you so much. Love, Rico's family.
