I am Melissa Naranjo-Ortiz, i am sister of Beto Ortiz which is the father of Matilda.

Matilda was a 5 yr old young baby that has left us on March 17th. She was lost in the River at Knights Ferry CA and was found 4 days later. Now her parents are left with the had decision on what to do with funeral expenses.

This account was made for that reason. For those people who wanted to donate money for her. I was unsure of what amount to put.

Marissa Matildas mom, is lost and is trying to make the best decision for Matilda.

I want to thank everyone for every single word of confort it has made our pain be easier in a way.

We as a family of Matilda pray that Marissa and Beto get the peace they need through this very unexpected time.

Thank you.

Matildas was a very happy child, she was a stubborn little girl who had autism. She began her life here in Patterson but had recently moves to Modesto then Oakland with her mom Marissa.

Marissa and Beto shared Matilda on the weekly. One day my bother Beto left to take Matilda out as he always tried to do and took her to the Flea Market in Modesto then ended up in Knights Ferry CA. After running around with Matilda they ended up getting hot. Matilda loving water got too close to the water and ended up being taken away with the current. Beto panic and didn’t hesitate to jump in trying to save his brother so did his friend and strangers but God had a different plan for Matilda. Nobody could of saved her. She was lost for several days, to be exact 4, when volunteers found my nieces lifeless body. March 20 Matilda Athena Ortiz was found, that day was my birthday (Melissa) and i share this not to get identifies, but as I feel that she wanted me to share something special.

Many people were involved in what they called #OperationMatilda. Where our law enforcement and Fire department called.

No my family is grieving, but happy because she was found and not only that because we have her with us.

My name is Melissa Naranjo-Ortiz and I have been helping my Brother Beto and sister in law Marissa organize my God Daughter Matilda last life Celebration/Funeral.

Matilda was loved by many and the way i see it now was everyones daughter, even the people who didnt know her everyone was involved. And because everyone was involved by sharing volunteers communities. We would like to have those that donated come and set her free one last time.

Viewing will be at Sacred Heart Patterson Wednesday 27@10am.

Thank you.

This pain of loosing My Matitis has been easier in a way because people show us love and support. We have no words to express our gratitude.
