El vino a los Estados Unidos de Guatemala en Diciembre 18 del ano pasado. Devido a la profunda pobresa que el y su familia sufria, tuvo que dejar sus padres y hermanos, la tierra de su orijen, su pais.

El vino a los Estados Unidos con la ilusion de hacer algo con su vida para el futuro y despues de un tiempo regresaria a su familia, pero inevitablemente su fortuna no occurio asi.

El Jueves Octubre 6, por las 2 de la manana, el salio de su trabajo y cuando iba crusando la calle con unos amigos, un carro lo atropello.

La ambulancia lo llevo a el hospital. Los doct ores lo operaron para salvarle la vida, pero fue imposible, porque sus piernas, estomago y columna estaban rotas y no sobrevivio el golpe, murio por las cinco de la manana.

Su primo tambien fue lastimado, pero gracias a dios todavia esta vivo. Ahora su familia y amigos aqui y en Guatemala no tienen paz.

Nelson fue un buen joven, humilde, trabajador, responsible y muy carinoso. Pero ahora todo lo que tenemos es nuestra memoria de el. El ya no esta aqui, pero su espiritu vivira con nosotros para siempre.

Apreciamos a toda la gente que nos quiere ayudar, que Dios los bendiga por su assistencia y colaboracion, gracias. Que Dios los bendiga.

He came to the US from Guatemala on December 18 of last year. Due to the deep poverty he and his family were struggling with, he had to leave his parents and siblings, his land of origin, his country. He came to the US with the illusion of making something for his future and after sometime he would be able to return to his family, but unfortunately fortune did not turn out that way. On Thursday October 6th, at around 2 in the morning, he came out of work and when he was crossing the street, he and his friends, a car ran him over. The ambulance took him to the hospital. The doctors operated on him to save his life but it was impossible, because he had broken legs and his stomach and spine did not survive the impact and he died at around 5 in the morning. His cousin was also badly hurt but thank God he is still alive. Now his family and friends here and in Guatemala have no peace. Nelson was a good young man, humble, a very hardworker, responsible and very caring. But now all we have is his memory. He is no longer here, but his spirit will live on forever. We appreciate the people who want to help us, God bless you for your assistance and collaboration thank you. God bless you.
