We Are So Blessed – Thank You! Aztlan Raza Unidos 4th Annual “Christmas Angel” Program

Aztlan Raza Unidos 4th Annual “Christmas Angel” Program – We Are So Blessed – Thank You!

This year’s Christmas Angel Program was a tremendous success.  This year Andrew and I, along with our “Christmas Angels” were again able to touch the lives of many children in California.  And this year we are proud to announce that we were able to extend our “Christmas Angel” program and started touching the lives of as many children here in the State of South Dakota were Andrew and I currently reside.

So we’d like to thank the following “Angels” without whose support we would not have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many children this Christmas 2017.

Mr. and Mrs. Frank & Jessie Garcia (Frank’s Hats)

Mr. and Mrs. Fabian & Julie Rae Dumas

Ms. Paula Diaz & Ms. Krystal Rose

Ms. Reyna Macias

Ms. Valerie Romero

Mr. Frank (Frenkie) Mills Miranda (Chicano Radio Network)


So, from the bottoms of our hearts Andrew and I thank each and everyone of you who gave and for those of you who follow us, keep us in your prayers as we do likewise.  

We wish you all a very “Merry Christmas” and a Blessed and Prosperous 2018!

Out Love and Respect

Ernest Marquez beloved father, husband and Veteran 10 November 1962 – 23 December 2016


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.
