On January 1, 2021 our families (Verdin, Pulido, and Ayala) lost eight members in a tragic accident. Gabriela Verdin, Brooke Pulido, Giada Pulido, Jonah Pulido, Mia Pulido, Daniella Ayala, Camila Ayala, and Anthony Ayala were taken from us while returning home.
Gaby and the kids were full of life and had so much future ahead of them. Gabriela Verdin is survived by her parents Juventino and Olivia Verdin, her brother Saul and his family (Reyna, Matias, and Evelyn) and her sister Karina Verdin who lost three of her own children in this tragedy. The Pulido children are survived by their father Juan Pulido and several Pulido uncles and cousins. The Ayala children are survived by their mother Karina Verdin, their father Johnny Ayala, and two additional siblings: Damien and Oliver Ayala. At this time Damien has been hospitalized at Valley Children’s due to cardiac surgery and had been missing his siblings dearly.
While we cannot begin to understand the reason we lost them all at once, we are burdened with the reality of having to lay eight family members to rest at one time. We take solace in knowing that they left this world together. We humbly request any help you can provide the family with memorial costs to allow them to focus their time on grieving. We appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers from everyone in the community; we know that Gaby and all the kids were loved and we hope to honor that memory forever.
Please note this GoFundMe is the only one officially endorsed by the Verdin Family. All funds will be used for placing our loved ones to rest. Any remaining funds wills be used to help support the family with any financial needs.
For those inquiring about the separate GoFundMe account started by Rebecca Gonzalez. She has indicated those funds will be transferred to the families for the service costs.
