Andrés adds in his update:
UPDATE: Over on his blog, Emanuel Xavier has updated information about a funeral service for Willi Ninja to be held this Friday in St. Albans, Queens. At the time of his passing, there were some hospital bills that still had to be paid and friends are trying to set up a way for people to donate and help his mother cover some of these expenses. Additional information about donations and a possible benefit will be forthcoming. For the latest, you can visit Willi Ninja's MySpace page at www.myspace.com/willininja which is being updated by Aimee. I will share additional information as it becomes more concrete.
