Hello everyone. My family and I with heavy heavy hearts have put together this go fund me account to help us out with my aunts funeral expenses. My aunt Maria Elena Alvarez Marin aka The beautiful and amazing Tia May is not doing well. She has been battling cancer for 2 years now and her body is very tired. We’ve been told we only have a few days if not hours left with her. As we gather around her here today, we want to take a minute to communicate with anyone reading this how amazing Tia May was, is, and will live on to be in our hearts forever. At a very young age my aunt sacrificed her life in Mexico to take care of her 10  brothers and sisters after her dad passed away. At the ripe age of 18 she made a hard call and left behind the college education that she was already getting, she left behind her friends and most importantly she left behind  the love of her life Mickey to come to America and set up her family for success. She has continuously taken care of and cared for so many people and so many peoples children. Tia Mays house was the place to be. One thanksgiving we were giving thanks around the table and everyone was simply thankful for Tia May. The opportunities, tools, and help that she has offered and equipped us with are irreplaceable. Life is going to be hard with out you Tia May. Te amo.  Thank you again for any donations. We appreciate any help and hope the best for everyone. Thank you.
