Hi my name is RJ Mendez, here's my story..
It started on a beautiful Monday August 10th. My wife Rechelle Mendez (click name for video) was all smiles since it was our youngest sons 7th birthday. No quarantine could hold her back from going out and at least get a cake and some food for a little celebration. "At least let him blow a candle anyway" she lovingly said. I smiled and said Yes. Everything seems to be going well and it is such a look forward to kind of feel. I was asleep since I work at night (from home). Excited as she is, she didn't even wait for us and set up the birthday cake and candle and what little foood we had. She lovingly sang Happy Birthday to our baby and she got it on video through her phone. It all went well indeed, at least for that day.. 😔
August 11th 1:30am, she had a massive stroke and we rushed her to the hospital. While the previous days' birthday celebrant was asleep. The next time he saw her, his mommy was in a casket. Getting ready to be brought to her final resting place. Until now, he would ask where his mommy is with the look of hope that she would be coming home soon. I could only look and shed a tear, lost for words.
Long story short, she lost her battle after a week and we have lost our light at home. All the expenses that we incurred we had to temporarily take it from some other sources including the 3 kids school funds.
Knowing her, she wouldn't have agreed to that. But we did anyway.
With that said, I, as a father would like to appeal for some help in getting together what we had initially set aside for their school as all of what we had has been drained with mommy's funeral expenses. We would greatly appreciate any response and would be a load off our grieving souls.
