Today, Children Beyond Our Borders mourns the loss of Gio Zorrilla, the beloved brother of one of our former alumni, Alex Zorrilla. In times like these, we stand together as a family and show our support to those who were closest to Gio.
We are so saddened by the loss your family has suffered but inspired by the people who Gio touched. Many whom he never met. When Alex joined our CBOB Family, we immediately felt the strength of his brother and the journey his whole family has been through and would continue to be on. You will be missed Gio! Thank you Alex for sharing his story with us and we are here for you! - Andrea Ortega
"Alex, I can remember the light in your eyes, the motivation, encouragement and love that shined through when you spoke of your brother. The loss of your brother here on earth, is a huge gain in Heaven, for God will have him sitting by his side and continuing to shine his light down on you. Continue to work, study and love hard... For you have such talent and genuine love for the world. We all know your love for your brother and drive to want to help him and others is what continues to give you strength. But don't forget we CBOB of Medellin are always here for you, we are your sisters and your brothers and will be here for you whenever you need us. Stay strong our brother- we love you." - Nicole Linardi
Although Gio’s service was on January 23rd, we invite you to visit his GoFundMe page to help the family with any costs they might run into during this time.
No One Can Know
No one can know just what you've lost;
No one can understand the cost;
But when you feel your energy drain,
Please count on us to help ease your pain.
Let us help you cope with grief;
We hope with time you'll feel relief.
We can't replace the one who's gone,
But let our concern help you carry on.
