ERNIE MARQUEZ MEMORIAL FUND ~ HELP A FAMILY IN NEED ~

Dear Friends and Family:
As many of you may know our friend Ernie Marquez lost his four year battle with liver cancer. Doctors had given Ernie six months to a year to live as recently as several weeks ago. The doctors told Ernie that all they could do at this point was to offer him “Palliative Care”, which meant that there wasn’t anything more doctors could do for him.  Ernie ever positive and ever the battler decided that he’d continue his battle with this cancer at home using natural homeopathic treatments. However, the Creator needed him home, and sadly, Ernie went to be with his Mother and received his Angels wings on December 23rd of this month.

Ernie was always a hard working man,  a machinist by trade who routinely worked up to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week to support not only his own children but also provide for many more children who he was a father figure to for well over 24 years.  As was typical Ernie he and his wife Lisa always found ways to provide for all “his children” until he no longer could. Unfortunately, scraping by did not allow for any extras and Ernie’s death has left his wife and family with mounting expenses they are now challenged with.

We are now asking you all to consider partnering with Theresia and I in donating whatever amount your heart leads to, to help defray the funeral and related expenses. We are hoping to raise approximately five thousand dollars.

You will be able to donate at www.aztlanrazaunidos.com, where you will see the PayPal donate button (Ernie Marquez Memorial Fund). Donations will go directly to the family.

Ernie was a 16 year veteran of the U.S. Army (Regular, Reserves and National Guard) and will be interred at the Riverside National Cemetery with full military honors. Services are tentatively set for Jan 12, 2017.

Please direct any questions you may have to us by leaving a comment on our website.

Thank you in advance for prayers and donations on behalf of the Marquez family.

—————————————————————————————————————

Chrissy and my brother Billy met and fell in love as young teenagers, they were married, started a family and moved to Idaho where Billy worked as a plumber and Chrissy was a caretaker in a nursing home and worked with special needs children.  Their first born son  Billy Allen was born with down syndrome,  he is now 33 years old and also a diabetic.  In 2006 after all their children were grown and they were told they wouldn’t have anymore,  Chrissy found out that she was pregnant with Lacey.  Billy suffered a major heart attack during that time and had a pacemaker put in. During that time Lacey was in the nicu from birth and moved to children’s hospital in salt lake because she almost died,  she was very tiny and couldn’t eat,  very sick baby.  Billy lived with the pacemaker for 8 years before he passed away on 2/24/2015. Their oldest daughter crystal gave birth to Cayson in 2009 and they live with Chrissy, Billy was able to see his grandson and help raise him for the first 6 years of his life,  Cayson also has special needs,  adhd, etc… Chrissy and Billy were married for 32 years before he passed,  she says she will never love again,  he was her whole world.  Chrissy has suffered several heart attacks since my brother passed and now has diabetes full blown,  they recently put her on insulin but she can’t aid the $1200 a month for the medication so they gave her free samples for the first month.  She is unable to work due to her health.  Her and Billy Allen somehow came into contact with scabies and it’s taken the hospital 4 months to figure out what it is so they have been suffering all these months and now they have been told to get rid of all their furniture, beds, couches, everything. They live in Idaho Falls and their heater just went out.  Last year someone offered to sponsor the family for Christmas but the donations never arrived so the kids only got about 2 gifts each. Chrissy seriously needs help this Christmas to give the kids a good Christmas.
