Vanessa Cardenas Gonzalez Memorial

To all our friends, family and church family, it is with a broken heart that we announce the passing of a wife, loving mother, daughter and friend Vanessa Cardenas Gonzalez. Vanessa tested positive for COVID-19 a few days before she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl Heaven Leigh Gonzales. She was not able to hold her or have any contact with her 1st baby girl (whom she was very excited to meet). She was sent home and  given instructions to quarantine from the baby and her family only to see her baby on FaceTime. The next morning Vanessa was rushed to the hospital where she suffered a heart attack causing brain injury. She spent her last days on a ventilator at UCLA. 

Her husband Alfonso Gonzalez and her 3 children (Ruben 11, Joshua 7, and baby Heaven 1 month) are asking for your financial support to giver her a proper Celebration Of Life Service and for whatever else is needed.  They also ask that you keep them in your prays during such a difficult time. Any amount will be appreciated. Thank you in advance and God bless.
