Rico's Funeral Expenses

On Saturday, Jan 20 , our friend Patty experienced the heartbreak that no parent should ever have to face. She lost her beloved Rico, her lil guy. He was born into this world a tiny little fighter and defied medical odds. Rico was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and a rare  Chromosome condition (13  q deletion). Doctors said he wouldn't live past his teens but he lived to see his 28th birthday.He attended Walton and redwood schools. as well as an adult program at UCP. He was deeply loved by his 2 brothers and 3 sisters. He had an especially  close relationship with his Lola , with whom he is now reunited with in heaven. He left this world surrounded by the love of his family, but his loss has left his mother saddened beyond words. Please help us support our friend Patty lay her son to rest by contributing whatever you could afford to go towards the burial costs. Unfortunately, life insurance was not an option for Rico, due to his medical needs. Your gift will go a long way towards helping this family heal. Thank You and God Bless.
