On Wednesday, March 5, 2015, Efrain and Rosa's mother, Francisca Diaz Lopez, age 48, passed away after a long battle with cancer. She was a resident of Chiapas, Mexico. The children moved to the United States in 2004 and had not seen their mother since that time. Fortunately, they were able to communicate via telephone on many occasions over the last few years. Efrain Jr. was especially pleased to send her money on holidays and to help with medical care, just as we had on many occasions.
We are assisting them with funeral costs and a few donations have already been made; however, a great number of friends and family have contacted us with a desire to do something for Efrain, Rosa, and the family. For this reason, we thought it may be fitting to allow those who wish to contribute something to do so in this manner. Funds received will be appropriated for necessary funeral costs with any excess being directed to an account for Efrain and Rosa solely. If you choose to express your sympathy in this way, we are certainly grateful .... our heartfelt thanks.
