I’m writing you from Tokyo, Japan, because this is an important concern. After I wrote about Patrick’s death, many of you asked if you could make a gift to honor Patrick’s memory and help his family.
Please share this post so we can raise $5,000+ USD
So, I wrote to Patrick’s brother Robert, to ask. He suggested that Patrick’s daughter Maya and son Aaron would appreciate any and all help from friends. They had unexpected travel expenses to cover to come to Chiapas from Mexico City, where they both go to university.
A Tribute to Patrick Murphy Ruiz: In Memorium
Heartfelt thanks to so many of you who wrote tributes to Patrick’s memory in the comments section of that blog post. The family read every word you wrote and this keeps Patrick alive. He touched so many of us, left an everlasting impression. His life was a gift.
Since Patrick didn’t have insurance, his other brother Juan David covered all the funeral expenses.
Now, there is tuition expense for both Maya and Aaron, that was covered in full by Patrick. With his death, Robert and Juan David have pledged to help however they can. But it won’t be easy. Robert tells me that it would be of extraordinary help to them if friends could make a donation of whatever size to supplement what they are able to provide.
I’m going to give you BBVA Bancomerbank account information to wire funds to Mexico for this purpose.
