Remembering the Life of Donavin Traore

At 24 years old what were you doing? Probably enjoying your carefree life thinking you have all the time in the world to turn up & do it all over again tomorrow but what if you were 24 sitting in the ICU coughing up blood, pneumothorax, in both lungs, pneumonia, diabetes ketoacidosis, renal failure. Would this make you want more out of your life? 

I share this because this heartbreaking situation was Donavin’s and despite all our hopes, prayers & wishes that Donavin would walk out that hospital on his own two feet, God brought him home in peace to his beloved kingdom in heaven on November 18, 2020. 

If you knew Donavin, you know his smile lit up a whole room, his humble present brought a sense of peace towards his friends & family. The absence of his presence is more than just significant lost to our grieving hearts, apart of all us died with him that day & we will forever carried a missing hole in all our heart forever. 

To honor Donavin’s life we want to give him one last gift, a large tombstone that celebrates the person he will forever still be in all our hearts, a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin & friend. Any additional money will go to helping my family out during this devastating, hardship of a time. Any prayer or donation are greatly appreciated during this time.

We thank you for taking the time to read this.
