Eric Ramaharonirina passed away suddenly in the early morning hours of February 24. He has left behind his longtime partner Alison Iven and their two young children, Arthur & Eddie.
Eric could make friends with everyone and exuded love and lightness into the world . He recently embraced their new farm life after moving from New York City to Bellefontaine, Ohio, at the beginning of the pandemic, where he added racing lawnmowers to his long-time love for mopeds, cars and bikes.
As a family, they're just taking things as they unfold and the waves of grief come and go. It appears forward momentum helps. The kids know but they're little guys so it's hard to say exactly. As you can imagine, the next few months will be incredibly challenging while they continue to grieve the loss of Eric. I am putting this fundraiser together to help with child care, therapy, spending time together, and anything they may need to heal without the added stresses of bills and living expenses. Any amount is appreciated and will all go directly to Alison, Arthur & Eddie.
Update from Alison: Thank you so much for everyone who has reached out and thank you for your generosity. He was so unbelievably loved and it makes me so happy and grateful to know that.
