on behalf of Diana Garrido
 VERONA, WI
I am looking to help a very dear friend of mine, Diana Garrido. Her husband, Rafael Garrido passed away unexpectedly on Friday, Nov. 25, 2016 in Santa Marta, Colombia. He was there to visit his ailing father. His father passed on Monday. The next day, Rafael became ill and had to be admitted to the ICU.

Unfortunately, Diana and sons were not able to make the trip to Colombia. We are looking to raise funds so that Diana, Santiago and Andres are able to travel to Colombia to bring Rafael's ashes back so that they can have a proper funeral service and bring closure to them.  We are also looking to cover medical bills from his stay in the ICU in Colombia.  

Diana and I were college roommates.  I was there when she met Rafael.   Rafael was good husband and father and it would mean the world to me if I could spread the word and help her in any way I can.  I am pleading to all of you who know me, Diana, Rafael and their sons.  

During situations like these there is very little one can do to console a broken heart,  but your generosity would certainly make a difference it the life of this family, especially during the holiday season.  Any little bit will help and I truly thank you for your kindness.

Busco ayudar a una muy querida amiga mía, Diana Garrido. Su esposo, Rafael Garrido falleció inesperadamente el viernes 25 de noviembre de 2016 en Santa Marta, Colombia. Estaba allí para visitar a su padre enfermo. Su padre falleció el lunes, 21 de noviembre de 2016. Al día siguiente, Rafael se enfermó y tuvo que ser ingresado al hospital.

Desafortunadamente, Diana y sus hijos no pudieron hacer el viaje a Colombia. Estamos buscando recaudar fondos para que Diana, Santiago y Andrés puedan viajar a Colombia para traer las cenizas de Rafael para que puedan tener un servicio funerario adecuado. También estamos buscando cubrir las facturas médicas de su estancia en el hospital en Colombia.

Diana y yo éramos compañeras de cuarto de la universidad. Yo estaba allí cuando conoció a Rafael. Rafael era buen marido y padre y significaría el mundo para mí si pudiera difundir la palabra y ayudarla de cualquier manera que pueda. Les pido a todos ustedes que me conocen, que conocen a Diana, a Rafael y a sus hijos.

Durante situaciones como estas hay muy poco que se puede hacer para consolar un fallecimiento, pero su generosidad ciertamente haría una diferencia en la vida de esta familia, especialmente durante las fiestas navideñas. Cualquier monto le ayudará y realmente les agradezco su generosidad.

¡Por favor ayúdenme a difundir la palabra!
