In Loving Memory of Ronald Oliver

Donation protected
Dear friends, family, and compassionate strangers,

We are reaching out to you with heavy hearts and deep sadness to share our devastating journey over the past few weeks. On July 19, during what was meant to be a relaxing hour, my beloved partner, Ronald, tragically contracted Legionnaires' disease. This vicious infection took hold after spending just five minutes in the hot tub room. Despite our immediate actions after seeing mold, nine days of battling symptoms at home, and six days in the hospital fighting for his life on life-support, we lost Ronald on August 3.

The loss has left our family shattered, but we are determined to honor Ronald's memory and provide the best possible future for our children. We are blessed that I did not contract the infection, our children could have lost both of their parents. However, we are now faced with the immense challenge of navigating life without our Papi's love, guidance, and support.

We are humbly asking for your support during this difficult time. The funds raised will be used to cover the expenses associated with Ronald's memorial service, allowing us to honor his life and say our final goodbyes in a meaningful way. Additionally, a portion of the donations will be dedicated to securing the future of our children, providing them with the tools, education, and support they need to persevere through this immense loss.

Your contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference for our family. It will help us ease the financial burden that comes with unexpected tragedy and allow us to focus on healing and rebuilding our lives. Moreover, your kindness and generosity will serve as a beacon of hope during these dark times, reminding us that we are not alone in our grief.

We are eternally grateful for any support you can provide, whether it be through a donation, sharing our story within your network, or simply keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. Every act of kindness is a step towards healing and a testament to the incredible power of community.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and for being a source of strength and support during this unimaginable journey.

With love and gratitude,
The Oliver Family
