    Prayer Request - from Bolt Bunker

    I am posting something pretty heavy here - but this person has asked for help.

    He is a recent member here and a long time member at the Bolt Bunker D4L here - Diego4Life on the Bunker...

    Here is my post from the Bolt Bunker - if anyone is so inclined - thank you...


    I just got off the phone with Pedro (Diego4Life). I called him after he sent me a PM tonight. I am not going to share the whole message but here is part of it:

    ...I'm not sure when the next time I'll be on here will be, hopefully soon. But I had another tragedy in my family. I just found out a few hrs ago my Dad, brother and sister in law were driving back from mexico and got into an accident. Their kids survived but my dad,bro and sis in law didn't. I'm trying to get tix to SD now. I'm hurting really bad bro. So much has gone since last month now this...

    He is flying to San Diego tomorrow to be with family and I asked if there is anything I can do and all he said was he needs prayers for him and his family.

    He has my number and knows he can call anytime day or night and he assures me he will be ok, just needs time with his family right now. He promised to call me and let me know he's ok. I of course will pass it on here.

    He is very thankful for everyone here - so please have him and his family in you thoughts...

    I will pass on any news as soon as it comes.

    Jeff

    Thanks everyone

    To compound things, he was already dealing with a new divorce. This just piles misery on top.

    I already donated. I wish I could do more.

    To reiterate, those who would like to donate any amount to help defray my friend and longtime Charger fan Pedro's costs for coming to San Diego, because of the tragic loss of 3 of his family members yesterday, please go to this link:

    I just talked with D4L. He is in California. He is going to log on when he can but he is so happy so many paople - on all all 3 sites - have reached out to him in this very difficult time.

    He said - "God bless you all" and of course I relpied "God Bless you and your family Pedro"

    Side Note - SDRaiderH8dr posted that if the AFC Championship game was in S.D. he had a FREE ticket for him, I cannot tell you how much that meant to him. Also I told him that donations were pouring in - and that's when he lost it all together.

    But now he's with family and he will be ok.

    Pedro and I have been communicating via text. He and the family are holding up ok.

    Another challenge has been the fact that the accident occurred in Mexico so make all the necessary arrangements and securring transportation to bring the deceased family members back to the States has been difficult. They think they have the arrangements now but its going to be very expensive. Another reason the fundraiser was such a good idea and they very much appreciate it.

    He really does apprecite everyone here and he will log in as soon as he feels up to it.

    Also, I was asked if there was an address in case people wanted to send funds directly, and I have his address so just PM me and I will be happy to get it to you.

    My prayers and positive thoughts continue to be with he and his family. My deepest condolences to he and his family. If there is anything I can do more than that let me know.

    PS what about a Bolttalk fund to help the family.

    I spoke with Pedro. Man this family is going through a lot. The bodies of all 3 family members still have not been released and now they have been told that they will have to go into Mexico and identify the bodies first.

    The family is staying close together but they can't get closure as this process drags on.

    He is very thankful for everyones support and says he will log on soon.

    The expenses are mounting so again great job everyone on the financial support.

    Give your family an extra hug.

    PS what about a Bolttalk fund to help the family.

    Several forums, including Bolt Bunker and Bolt Talk, have started a combined donation fund to help defray his expenses as this drags on.

    Here again is the link to the page at Bolt Bunker where you may donate if you wish:

    http://boltbunker.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2494

    I dont believe you even need to register. Just go to the top of the page, and click donate. You will be guided to where you can help monetarily.

    I just got off the phone with Pedro. I talked with him awhile.

    Im glad I finally called him. I was apprehensive all week.

    He's hanging in there and said to report to y'all that he is okay. He surprised me how a little upbeat he was. He even chuckled a few times.

    He is surrounded by family so that is helping. I reiterated that he has many friends here that are here for him.

    Good words, my friend.

    They FINALLY got all 3 bodies back here last night from Mexico. They didnt have to go identify them. At last, something positive to report. Although, the amount they had to pay was ridiculous, so any funds we collect will be very needed and welcome.

    His Mom doesnt have internet, that is why he hasnt been on. He said he will get into a library or somewhere that has internet soon and log on here.

    I don't really know him (have seen him a few times on the other forum on the occasions I lurked it a little) but this is a tragic and touching story and my prayers are with him and his family...how very very sad. I will make a little donation too because I think we should all help each other in life during dark times...I will look for the link for donations but it would be good if it was posted here. God Bless him and his family. And rest in peace to his beloved family who were taken.
