 RIO VISTA, CA
A tragedy has hit our family Martin who is a loving father, husband and son has fallen ill about a couple of weeks ago when he was hit with a rare case of botulism, he has been in the hospital all this time and has had other setbacks surrounding his case including respiratory complications causing him to breathe through a ventilator and has become non responsive whatsoever to the point of being in a coma state. His wife and two kids are struggling to make ends meet. He is the breadwinner of the family and by him being in this position its taken a toll both emotionally, physically and economically, we are asking friends, family, anyone who can help out the Galindo family during this hardship we would greatly appreciate it. Maria Messina and Omar Messina who are godparents to the children will be handling any gofundme inquiries or donation related questions we appreciate your support during this difficult time.

We appreciate everyone's support during this difficult time, Why did Martin left us so soon? They say when you go into the garden and you're overlooking all the flowers, you pick the best ones to take with you. Family and friends who surrounded themselves with his presence will miss him and will keep him in their hearts forever. Those who came into this page and supported Martin in anyway and contributed positively to help make this painful process a little bit less stressful may god be with you and keep blessing you, the world needs more like you. Martins funeral service will be as follows:

Wake is Tuesday May 30th from 4pm-7pm in the mausoleum at the Holy Cross Cemetery at 2200 E. 18th St. in Antioch

Mass is Wednesday May 31 at 10am at Holy Rosary Church at 1313 A St. in Antioch.

Once again we thank you ALL and GOD BLESS YOU

Due to the lack of care at the previous hospital and the spread of the illness Martin was announced clinically brain dead a few days ago, we appreciate everybody who has given their support one way or another. On May 18th he will be taken off life support and preparations for his funeral will commence in a few days...

Randi L. Skee seems like you haven't lost someone close to you. I know we won't make it to 80k, but any little dime is helping. If you think 80k or what ever a lawsuit will get you in the end is worth a life, your wrong. He is my brother, he was a humble person and a great man. If you think money is more important, It would be nice if you two could switch places.

I don't understand how people can say get a job or why she is asking for $80,000 the kids just lost a father and the wife just lost a husband If he made $50,000 a year thn the $80,000 will get them though there most difficult year there ever going to have. If you can't say anything nice then I think you should keep you comments to your self his family is going to read this and they don't need your bullshit comments on here.

For all the franks, Jacobs, and randis out there if you don't have something positive to say then just keep your shit to your self. You guys are pricks and are praying on a family in their weakest moment in order to get some damn attention. Live and let live you don't like it then just don't donate and move on.

I am so sorry for your loss. Just ignore the morons who don't understand what his wife and kids are going thru. If his wife doesn't have a college degree, then she won't make 80,000.00 for several years. By the time she pays for child care, mortgage, (if they own a home), groceries, insurance, etc: etc:, she wan't have enough money to buy food. WOW, it amazes me how dense some people are.

For those who have commented that 80K is a lot of money , it won't even come close to covering the hospital bills for weeks in ICU. I just got the bill for our daughter for one day in the hospital for an appendectomy and it was 40K. She didn't even have to be in the ICU. If the gas station is the only one found liable, this family is not going to get rich, but even if they did it would never replace the loss of the children's father or her husband. There will be medical bills, counseling bills for the wife and children, household bills he covered with his salary, and even if they win in court it may be years before they see any money, minus court and lawyer fees. In the meantime this family still needs a roof over their heads and food on the table. I am so sorry for your loss, and for the ignorance and judgment of others.

really people, it is called saving and planning for the future or a rainy day...just my feelings. married or single over 18. life is a business. if you marry " be prepare for a rainy day", "have kids, plan ahead". if business is bad can you afford kids. if business is bad can you afford a wife. take care of your business and make sure it is profitable and can afford the other good things in life..wife and kids. other wise you are iresponsible and something happens you just plan on hand outs.
