This campaign is to help the family with expenses for the memorial/funeral of Mary Granados, the Letter Carrier in Odessa who was murdered and carjacked while working during today’s mass shooting in Odessa, TX.
I started this campaign on behalf of the family to help them some way during this difficult time, with permission from her twin sister Rosie Granados, who will make sure funds are use accordingly.
I had the privilege to work with Mary before she started her career at USPS, she was beautiful inside and out, with a great heart and always ready to be a friend, always had a smile on her face!
Keep her family in your prayers.
