Dad's Medical and Funeral Expenses

Hi all, I originally created this gofundme page because my dad, Rafael Zepeda, was unfairly deported back in 2015 and ever since, his health had greatly deteriorated. The transition caused him to suffer through depression, alcoholism, and some serious health problems where he just could no longer get up from his bed. He had been in and out of the hospital and eventually had to remain in there because the doctor said he needed surgery. The doctor performed surgery onto him and after a week we were able to bring him home. We were lucky and blessed to have met our goal and pay off what was needed to be paid so I closed the page. Now I have reopened this gofundme page because my dad unfortunately passed away at 3:30 this morning. After the surgery, he did his best in taking care of himself but soon after he began getting some serious stomach pains. He went to the hospital a few times but was not getting the medical attention he needed and was told that it was nothing serious. This Sunday his doctor finally took the time to see him and found that what he had was a serious infection. He performed another 8hr long surgery but unfortunately it was too late and he ended up leaving us a few days later. I ask for you to please keep him in your prayers so that he rests in peace and for you to also share and/or donate as we need the money for his medical and funeral expenses. He was a great man with the biggest heart. He was loving and caring to anyone who crossed paths with him. Helped anyone who was in need always whether he knew them or not. He was a son, brother, grandfather but most of all the best father. Thank you all and may God bless you ❤️
