Memorial Mass for Juliana Restrepo Today
The Restrepo mass will be at 9:45 a.m. today at Our Lady of Mercy Church in Port Chester. A mass for Fernanda Gomez will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 10:45 a.m. at Our Lady of Mercy Church. Restrepo and Gomez were two of four killed in a horrific car crash on Sunday morning. Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of the four young people involved in the deadly accident.
The Gomez family was not financially prepared for such a tragic loss. Port Chester Trustee Luis Marino is asking anyone interesting in donating to the family to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
