A month ago we lost our younger brother, Conor. He was epileptic and a seizure was the cause of his death. He was just 23 years old. Conor blessed this world with a beautiful daughter named Olivia. She turned a year old last month. Instead of gifts for the family or funeral donations, our family decided that what Conor would want most is to know that Olivia would be taken care of. That is why we asked for donations to her. As a family, along with Olivias amazing mother, Alyssa, we have decide to put the money into a college savings fund that Olivia will have access to when she turns 18. Olivias grandparents (Conors parents) have opened up a savings account for her.
Olivia currently resides in Livermore CA with her mom. As she continues to grow we can't wait to tell her all of the amazing stories about her father. We also can't wait to share the love you all have given her during this difficult time. Most of you have not had the pleasure of meeting her yet, but you all knew Conor, and the amazing personality he had, Olivia is just like him when he was a one year old; funny, brave, and full of energy.
My name is Lindsey, Conors oldest sister and Olivias aunt. I opened this account along with with my sister's Amy and Stacey, and our parents, Larry and Michelle. While my sister's and myself have been handling the go fund me account, our parents are behind the scenes handling the savings account that the money will be put into.
Thanks to all of you, Olivia will have a great start with her future education. We also know that Conor is so pleased with all of the love and support you all have shown his daughter. This has been a beyond difficult month, but knowing how much you all also loved and cared for Conor, and the support you want to give his daughter, has helped ease the pain.
Words could never describe how greatful we are for all of you.
