Fundraiser for Joseph Bansuelo's Family

It is with deep sadness that I write to let folks know that Joe passed away peacefully on the evening of Monday, May 25.  He was at home with his partner Gaea and son Joaquin at his side.  Joe had been in the hospital earlier that week for about four days without visitors, but was finally able to return home on Friday and managed to see Joaquin graduate from Skyline High School.  It was a surprise that his condition deteriorated so quickly once home, but a few close friends managed to visit and say goodbye.  It goes without saying that his family and friends are simply crushed.  

Reaching out for help is neither easy nor comfortable. Your responses will make it worthwhile. Please contribute anything that you can to help Gaea and Joaquin during this difficult time.

Much love,
Ryan
