Five children mourn the death of their beloved mother after she died suddenly in her sleep at just 39, leaving her childhood sweetheart to raise them alone.
sydney mum Andrea Marambio died unexpectedly and was found in bed last Tuesday morning, devastating her partner Daniel and their children Gabriel, Fabian, Enrique, Sebastian and Tristian.
Baby Tristian was born just two weeks before his mother died and will never know her.
“Instead of waking up to their mother’s loving embrace, her poor children received the shocking news that they would never see their mother again,” family friend Rend Nashi wrote on a GoFundMe page for the family.
‘Andrea and Daniel have been lovers since they were 15, and now he has to face life without her.
“Our hearts are simply broken.”

Daniel took to Twitter this week to ask his followers to send love to family and friends.
‘Just to answer everything in one message. My partner of 16 years, the mother of our five children passed away this morning,” he wrote.
“I’m going to be away for a bit, take care of yourself, tell your loved ones that you love them.”
Family friend Ayman Khamas wrote on Facebook about his “friend of over 20 years who (died) just two weeks after giving birth, leaving behind a husband and five children, including the newborn who will not know his mother”.
Mr Khamas asked if people could help the family through the GoFundMe page.
“Money will never bring a beautiful mother and a loving wife back to his family (but) it will certainly help not only to cover funeral expenses, but also to provide for the needs of the family,” he wrote.
Mr Khamas said the family would need help ‘until the father can return to work once the newborn is old enough to go to daycare’.
“It is also important to ensure that children have what they need to continue school and education so that they do not take the wrong path in life,” he added, thanking everyone who could make a donation.

“It is with great regret that we learn of the recent passing of Andrea Marambio. (She) was a member of the SD Raiders family for five years,” the club wrote in a message.
“Our sincere condolences to Daniel and his family on your loss…She will be sorely missed by everyone.”
