April 19, 2020 - Community Call to Action
Hello Dear Ones.
By now you may have heard that Angela has ascended. She passed April 5 after being home from the hospital for a few short days. We are heartbroken with this loss, which is more painful still since her father, Joe, recently joined her.
Given our collective reality, we know our support looks different through this. We hug ourselves thinking of someday embracing Angela's children, her mother, her husband, her sisters. Given our collective strength, we also know our support can continue to help lessen their load.
Please consider contributing or sharing the active links that help organize this effort. There is a GoFundMe page and a recently re-activated MealTrain. You can click/copy/paste from links here or access them through the "Ways to Help" tab above.
Angela's mother, Silvia, continues to care for Maya & Remy with her daughters, Rebecca & Melissa, one of whom is fighting COVID from home. Israel continues to heal from the hospital and hopes to be home soon. The MealTrain and GoFundMe supports all of them.
They are all so hugely grateful for all that's already been done, for all that continues to flow towards them. Our loving kindness makes it all a bit more bearable. Many of us know the profound power of receiving care during heartache and hardship. For those of us who are new to this magnitude of tragedy, the following concept may help.
Please remember, the most powerful support you can give is to send healing, loving vibes to Israel, to Maya, to Remy, to Siliva, to Melissa, to Becky, to all of the members of this grieving family. And to yourself. Because each breath becomes a prayer when we inhale love and exhale fear.

- Candice ArancibiaHola. My name is Candice Arancibia. First, let me say thank you for doing such beautiful and empowering work in the community by sharing Angela’s story . I heard about Angela’s story and was very touched and donated to the gofundme. My heart goes out to her family especially her children. I am a graduate student at SDSU and I’m working with professor Norma Iglesias- Prieto who is creating a dia de Los muertos alter honoring Latinx essential workers. I hoping that I could hear more about Angela’s story and could honor her for this alter?10/23/20
