In a Communiqué to the press, the GALINDO family writes:
"With great pain we would like to communicate to the public that today, Saturday 3 of October at 3;43 in the afternoon we lost our dear ANTHONY GALINDO IBARRA after six days, in which the Medical personnel at the Medical Center in Florida, did everything possible to try to save his life. We would like to thank all those who prayed for him, those who are trying to help our family in these very difficult times, and those who met him during his life. To follow his wishes, when he was still alive, the family will donate his organs."
And because of his organs' donation, we could deduce that Artist ANTHONY GALINDO IBARRA will continue living among us, in each of of those organ's recipients who his organs will help improve their health. If he donated his eyes, somebody will be able to see with them, and if he donated his heart, it will go on, giving love as ANTHONY did when he was alive, as it continues beating every day, in somebody else's chest.
We send our heart felt sympathy to the GALINDO FAMILY
