I am writing again with more sad news. Rodrigo, father of five children, finally passed away this morning. Both Jenny and Caroline had written a few times about visiting Rodrigo and how much being in the family's home had touched their hearts. My heart was touched as well. It has been a very tough year for this family, dealing with Rodrigo's illness. The only bright spot is that he is finally able to rest.
As I have written before, death is a huge source of financial worries for families. Not only are the dealing with the struggle of losing someone they love, but they are worrying about paying for things like a coffin and food for a wake. Anyone who has lost someone close to them knows how awful this situation can be and the last thing we want to do is worry about the logistics of a wake and funeral. Rodrigo's wife, Rosa, is going through just that right now, but with the added burden of not having even enough money to pay for food for her five kids.
Please consider making even a small collaboration to help this family through such a difficult time. We are hoping to come together to ease their burden and let them know that we are here with them through their struggle.
