EVENT DATE: Aug 06, 2013
To my dear family and friends,
A very close family friend's life has been rifled with many tragedies. Each time she suffers a major loss, her strength, resilience and faith in G-d is astoundingly humbling.
She is a woman of valor. She helps raise her grandkids (3 of which live in her house), she is a figurehead in my community and she helps ever single person she comes into contact with. This woman has given my family and my community so much. When my grandmother left Cuba, she helped my Abue start a life in Mexico City. She offered my grandmother, an 18 year old in a new country, friendship when my grandmother needed it most. Whenever I bump into her in the street, despite the hardships she has faced, her face never shows that she is unhappy. She is loving, warm and happy.
As of yesterday, her house went up in flames. Her daughter who lives with her is now in the hospital and all their possessions were destroyed. With that being said, any donations that can be made would mean the world. We're talking bout a family that has lost EVERYTHING. Every dollar counts. Anything you can spare will make the biggest difference in her life and those of her daughters and grandchildren.
Thank you in advanced,
Etty Kadi Diamond
