Devastation Caused by Sonoma Fire

My beautiful, sweet, kind, compassionate and wild boy has died in these tragic fires. My beautiful daughter Laura and my strong grandson Robert are here with me in San Pedro. This tragedy happened on Sunday, October 8th.  Michael was staying with family members, 18 beautiful acres were burned to the ground.  Michael had only been there for 2 days  and was there to meet with a real estate agent to look at property so he could buy his own little piece of land and build a cabin.  He was an avid outdoor kind of guy who loved fishing, looking at the stars at night and living the simple life.  His favorite movies were Lonesome Dove and Braveheart.  He loved the idea of living off the land. Laura lived in the City of Calistoga and was evacuated to several different shelters.  There are several articles on Michael that I have already posted on Facebook and via email. I am so grateful to my beautiful son Joshua who went to be with his brother and performed a shamanic Indian ceremony as he wrapped his brother in his favorite blanket and held him telling him how much he was loved.  This past Sunday, one week to the day of Michael’s death; Michael and Laura's father (my ex-husband) died as well.  The outpouring of love and kindness from family, friends and clients has been our salvation.  Donations will be welcome to support us with funeral expenses as well as rebuilding Laura and Robert's life who were also greatly affected. As a Spiritual Coach I send blessings to the many families affected by this incredible tragedy as I, myself, search for a way to accept this loss. Details are forthcoming on a Celebration of Life for Michael here in San Pedro. 
I am Maria Triliegi from San Pedro, California. I am Michael and Laura's Mother and Robert's grandmoter.  The funds will be used for funeral expenses for Michael. Donations will be used to help Robert who lost everything in the fire. and Laura who will need to replace  items from her home due to smoke damage.

May all the Gods and Goddesses bless our world that is in such chaos at the present time.
Sincerely,
Maria Triliegi
