Please Help us Give my nephew Christopher Espinal a decent burial. It’s has been a very, very tragic moment for us to loose our beloved Christopher Espinal born August 2, 1994 – June 8, 2016 just after loosing his brother Kevin Espinal no less than 6 months ago. Christopher was only 21yrs old a very loving person with a great heart loved by everyone. He was working very hard trying to help his mom and younger siblings to overcome his bothers death. His brother Kevin only 22yrs of age was killed 5 months ago. It has been difficult on all, especially his mom not only loosing her son but now two boys who had a long life yet to live. Christopher’s mom is now in a state of shock, the next day after loosing her son her left arm went numb. She was having a lot of chest pain and we had to take her to the hospital where they said she was too dehydrated from not eating or drinking and the pain that she is in can cause her to have a stroke. We are now taking turns watching over her and her children’s and at the same time doing garage sales and fund raiser event to help pay for funeral expense. Dr put her on sedations to help ease her pain. She currently has no money to bury her son since she just finished paying for her oldest son Kevin tombstone. I don’t even know how to begin telling you the story of what happened to Christopher but I will tell the best way I can remember it Christopher was in the bedroom with his younger brother and my son watching the game when he told his brother “I’m going to go take a shower” a short time pass and my son only 13yrs of age tells my sister (Christopher’s mom) “Chris is taking a long time in the shower”, so she tells my son “tell him to hurry up” so my son knock on door of bathroom but got no response. So his brother comes out and starts knocking and then his mom we all panic not hearing any answer but hearing just the water running. Then his mom, brother and my husband tried to open door thinking no there can’t be anything wrong but we wasted no time we said “knock the door down” so his brother kick the door down to find his brother laying in floor side ways. We all rush in bathroom his brother first followed by his mom and then me (Aunty Virginia) it look like he had some type of attack that he grab the bathroom curtain and drop to the floor with the shower curtain on top of him. When his brother screamed his mom rushed to take shower curtain off him. His mom flip him on his back and started CPR because he was not breathing and was already a purple blue color. When she realized he was not breathing or responding she started screaming and lost it. All the kids started screaming and crying. I don’t know how I remained calm my survival mode kick in. I continue CPR and instructed my husband to dial 911. I did CPR until I tired out and yelled for someone to help me. My brother-in-law reacted and took over. Then, Ambulance took over and instructed everyone to move to the room. Everyone then went to room but I refused to leave to room. I told them I will stay calm. I just wanted to make sure they tried everything to save him, which they did. They continue CPR for 30 to 40 minutes and gave him injections to try to revive his heart but he didn’t make it. Parametric said his sugar was very high. He went into diabetic shock. We were unaware he was diabetic neither did Christopher he was a healthy young man this shocked all of us. Christopher was very strong and loving. He was going to go to DR to help his dad. His dad is currently suffering from an enlarge heart. Chris wanted to spend some time with him to help him not only with his medical condition but also to help his dad overcome his brother death. This has been one tragedy after another. Especially for Christopher mom. Everyone please help us so we can give my nephew Christopher Espinal a decent burial so he can Rest in peace. Every penny donated will mean the world to us. So please continue to post our story by all means possible and continue to pray for our family to overcome this tragedy.
