THE STORY:

On Saturday, July 26, 2014 Heaven got a new Angel. Those were the words we read from our dear friend, Yajaira, speaking about losing her father, Arturo Curiel, Sr. Days after suffering a stroke and being admitted to the ICU, he looked to be on his way to recovery but sadly, things took a turn for the worst, and he passed away. Arturo Sr. was a pillar in his family, an amazing father, husband, brother, grandfather, beloved uncle and cherished friend to many in his community. Arturo Sr.’s life and legacy will be carried on by his wife, Cristina and children, Lupe, Arturo Jr., Yajaira, and a family full of brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, cousins, etc. He was laid to rest on July 31, 2014, in Napa, CA.

While the family was in the midst of mourning one loss, they received news of another family member being admitted into the hospital in Mexico. Yajaira’s maternal grandmother, Guadalupe “Lupita” Moreno had also fallen ill, and passed away on Friday, August 1, 2014, one day after her father’s burial. Buelita Lupita (Grandma Lupita), has always been a major source of support spending many years in the U.S.A to help raise her grandchildren.

Many have asked how they can support the family as they celebrate the lives of these two wonderful spirits, mourn their losses, and continue on their process to healing. Hence, this campaign was created to help raise funds to help the family with the financial burden that comes with losing, not just one, but two loved ones, in such unexpected ways. It’s almost unthinkable to reflect on what this family has just gone through having experienced so much loss, merely a matter of days apart. We, as friends of Yajaira and the Curiel family, wanted to show our support by setting up and donating to this fundraising campaign, and we are asking for donations of love and encouragement. We hope that, if you are able, you will consider donating what you can to assist the family. All of the funds raised here will go directly to the family to help offset the costs of funeral arrangements, travel for family members to and from California and Mexico, and any other costs associated with laying to rest their adored family members

To those of you who have already donated in other ways, with your time, food, cards, gifts, flowers, memories, etc. – Thank You! We appreciate you taking the time to read, for donating if you can, and for sharing if you are unable to make a monetary donation at this time.

Descanza en paz Arturo and Lupita.

Sincerely,
Friends of Yajaira, and the Curiel family
