Several weeks ago I realized I hadn't seen Mr. Liu for a week. On my way into work I stopped at the cleaners and asked Mrs. Liu if Mr. Liu was visiting his daughter in California. That's when I found out the sad story about how quickly he became sick. She told me he was driving home from work and had double vision "saw two street lights". They went to the hospital and they quickly determined he was full of cancer "from head to toe" I was told. It was only a couple weeks before he passed away.
I spoke with Mrs. Liu today and found out some details about her and her business. There will be no ceremony or visiting for Mr. Liu because of COVID. When COVID hit in March and nobody was working in their office their business was hit very hard. No more steady flow of cars in and out. Mrs. Liu is not going to keep the business but doesn't know what she can do with it. She is in talks with the landlord to negotiate her rent for the last few months she is there. She stated she needed $10,000 so she can transfer the business to a close friend and get herself moved to California with her daughter. I asked her if I could help and she gave me the go ahead.
My plea to anyone that has read this far. COVID has hit their businesses very hard. Mrs. Liu needs our help. After I left the cleaners I was thinking about how I was going to help. I decided to use the proven platform gofundme rather than take on a monumental task of doing this myself. First COVID has ruined their business and now this death that has shattered Mrs. Liu's life and business.
All funds collected will go directly to help Mrs. Liu pick up the pieces and move on. I am sad that Mr. Liu passed and I will be equally sad when Mrs. Liu moves on to the next stage in her life.
I neglected to mention the cleaners is on Ogden Ave and Yackley in Lisle.
