Sunday was not the beginning of this family's tragedy, about 8 years ago, Rudy was a victim of a random car shooting while he was just driving down the road. He had no ties or affiliations to gangs or criminal activity. He survived the incident, but his injuries resulted in paralysis from the neck down. Thankfully his mind was intact, but his world was not the same.
Before the incident 8 years ago, he was a positive, very loving, kind and caring person that loved life. He was always that guy that helped everyone else. He loved sports and continued to enjoy watching them. Despite his limitations, pain and discomfort, he continued his love of life. He and my niece Bianca, who stayed by his side through it all, had their child and shortly after became his wife in 2012.
On Sunday during a rare fun grubb run that took the love of her life, Bianca was given the task to now care for her child without her husband and all the responsibilities that it entails. Her only consolation is the realization that Rudy is now with our Heavenly Father, with no limitations, no pain and no discomfort.
As you can imagine, getting Rudy any kind of Life insurance was impossible. Your donations will assist Bianca with funeral expenses and care for her 7 year old son, during this transition.
Thank you all very much!
