Saturday December 3, 2016.
A day our families and I won't ever forget. My baby brother, Alex Vega, was one of the many victims who attended the event at the Oakland Warehouse that horrific night. My brother has not been recovered as of yet and we are in agony, just waiting for any kind of word about him. Everyone has been so supportive throughout this whole ordeal and many are asking how they can help in any way possible. This page is being set up for our family to help with future expenses that are coming. We appreciate anything you would like to help us with! We love you and Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for all the prayers, kind words and thoughts!
My heart goes out to Alex's family and anyone else he touched. I knew him briefly for the time he worked at Stuff ( Vintage store) in the Mission, yet he was easy to get to know. -Sharp as a tack, always extremely helpful in assisting me with my deliveries (I'm a vendor), enjoyed talking about design ( borrowed my books), comparing notes on each of our Miata's, exceptional service with customers there... So much so that I tried to recruit him to my other workplace, Exploratorium. ... Not to mention great taste in music (Bauhaus). Ageless spirit, kind soul. So tragic.
Sandie Manit is our daughter. She works with Kathy. When I heard about the fire, my heart broke. Then Sandie told me about Alex and Michela and I didn't think my heart could break any more, but it did. They didn't have a chance to live their lives. They were so young. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope our little donation to Alex's GoFundMe page helps. It's the only way I know of to help you. Bill & Kathy Shelby
