Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Burying a child is something no parent wants to endure. But unfortunately, that became a reality for the parents of J.D. Paiz.
On Saturday, his mother held a fundraising event to raise money for the J.D. Paiz Angels of Mercy Foundation.
This helps the disadvantaged pay for funeral services or medical bills.
The foundation was something that Rosa and her husband set up after the murder of their son last year. They hope to raise over $1,000 from the event this evening.
Rosa Paiz explains, "to help them with funerals or special needs that some families need, so we decided to start an angels of mercy for J.D. You know if we raise a thousand dollars today or two thousand dollars it goes back to the benefit of Angels of Mercy."
For more information about the foundation, and how you can donate to the cause, you can contact Rosa Paiz at the El Sombrero Restaurant in Jerome.
