On Decemeber 2nd we lost an honorable man to a tragic event.  Our uncle Isaac Gebreselassie Amanios was one of the 14 who lost their lives in the San Bernardino shooting.

Isaac had an infectious smile that could light up the whole room. He always had words of encouragement for anyone he came in contact with. He loved and cherished his family which led to his immigration to the United States in order to provide his family an opportunity for a better life.  Isaac believed in achieving the American dream through hard work and education. Everyone that knew Isaac would tell you that his dream was to watch his three children graduate college. His dream was coming true when all his children were accepted and attending college. It pains us that he will not be present at their graduation. He was a strong man, the one you can lean on.  It was not in his nature to ask for help, even though he was always the first one to provide it.

As we mourn his loss please help keep his dream alive by contributing to his children’s college education as they adjust to life without him.
