“One of the greatest things about our community is the common bond we all share. There’s a brotherhood that exists within our unique passion that many people never have the opportunity to experience…The truth is, we are a family. And like a family, we laugh together, celebrate together, come together for one another and when the time calls for it, we take care of each other.
We lost a brother this weekend. Those of us who have had the pleasure of knowing him will miss him more than words can describe. His passion, attitude and skating was nothing short of immaculate. It is an unspeakable loss for his family, friends, NYC, blading and the world. If you have had the pleasure to meet him once, or witness his skating, then you know what I mean. His energy was overwhelmingly positive at all times. He will be missed terribly.
With everything that Alex’s family has been through this week, the last thing we want for them to worry about is funeral costs. Please join us in showing your support for our brother. We will be having a fundraiser memorial session to honor his memory and raise some money for his family expenses, but to those of you who are not in NYC or will not be able to make it, we’re urging you to show your support by donating. We’re accepting donations to our Paypal at email@example.com. Seriously, ANY contribution will help. Also, if you do decide to donate, make sure you send it as a “gift” so paypal doesn’t take a percentage of it. Thanks everyone, let’s pull together for the homie on this one. You will be missed dearly brother. R.I.P. Alex Nunez” – Billy O’Neill.
