On Tuesday of last week, Andrea Marambio passed away unexpectedly in her sleep, only two weeks after she had given birth to her fifth child.
The 39-year-old woman was discovered motionless in her bed as her family began to wake up, and she was found to have left behind a boyfriend and five children.
“Instead of waking up to their mother’s loving hug, her unfortunate children were met with the startling news that they would never see their mother again,” a family friend named Rend Nashi said on a GoFundMe fundraiser plea in an effort to raise money for the family.
Since they were 15 years old, Andrea and Daniel have been in love with one another, and he must now learn to live his life without her.
Our entire beings have been completely broken.
As of Tuesday, the gofundme for the Marambio family had already reached more than $50,000 in donations.
A tragic post was also published by Daniel on social media, in which he said that he and Andrea had been dating since they were in high school.
I’ll try to address all of your questions in just one post.
This morning I found out that the mother of our five children, who had been my partner since we were both 16 years old, had passed away.
“I’ll be gone for a while, so please take care of yourselves and make sure to express your love to those who are closest to you.”
Another close friend of the family posted a sorrowful message on social media and appealed to friends for assistance in any form they could provide.
According to her post, “Money can never bring a lovely mother and a beloved wife back to her family; however, it will undoubtedly assist in not only covering the expenditures of the funeral, but also providing for the family.”
A friend close to the family said that they will require assistance in the interim period between when Daniel would be able to go back to work and when their newborn would be old enough to attend childcare.
