On March 31st, our lives changed forever. At 5:30 P.M., gunshots were heard at 202 West Lincoln Avenue Orange, California. The gunman took 4 lives, including my father and sister, and a 9 year child. One is left still battling for their life in intensive care(ICU). My heart is heavy as I try to grasp and accept what has happened. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-03-31/orange-mass-shooting-reported
I am Thalia Tovar, the daughter of Luis Tovar, and sister of Genevieve Raygoza, two of the lives lost in the Orange mass shooting. I have created this in hopes to raise enough funds for funeral services and medical expenses for all the families affected. We are still in shock and trying to fathom and grasp our heads around this tragic event. Please keep all of us affected in your prayers, including our loved one who is still fighting for her life in critical condition. Any amount is appreciated.
We are so deeply saddened by the loss of our father, sister, and close family friends. We can use any and all support during this time. We are hoping to raise enough to help all of the families because my dad wouldn’t have had it any other way. - Vania Tovar (Daughter to Luis & Sister to Genevieve)
Genevieve Arlene Raygoza was an amazing mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, and loving friend. She leaves behind two beautiful boys who will be looked after by their father, Armando Raygoza. She had a smile that could light up any room and a caring nature of putting other’s needs before hers. Although her life ended prematurely, she made a huge impact in the lives of those who were fortunate to call her a loved one or a friend. She will be greatly missed, but her memory will live on in our hearts forever. We love and miss you, Gen! - Armando Raygoza (Husband to Genevieve)
Please keep the surviving victim in your prayers, she is currently on life support.
We are kindly asking for any help to assist with all the medical expenses. She is currently under critical conditions but miraculously surviving 2 bullets to her head trying to save her 9 year old son. (Son to Blanca Tamayo, Brother to Luis Tovar, Brother to Genevieve Raygoza)
