Lucio, a 74-year-old grandfather, passed away last week from COVID. Loved by his family and friends, Lucio managed to offer all his love with whom he shared on a daily basis. But I'm not here to tell his story, but Stephen's. Stephen is a boy of just 5 years who has lost his grandpa. In these last days he has been remembering everything that they lived together. The walks in the park. The stories his grandpa used to tell him sitting next to his bed. The paper planes that entertained them for hours.
But now the boy must say goodbye to the grandfather. In the face of his pain, he is determined to find a way to honor him. He decides to record his grandfather's stories in the notebook he made for him and to take grandpa with him as he grows up.
This little boy is my son and I want to help him. Not only to turn that notebook into a book that can forever conserve, but also help other children who are going through a similar situation. That is why we are looking to create a book called "Remembering Grandpa." A book with stories and illustrations that allows children to remember and carry on the difficult moments that the loss of a loved one brings.
Our first goal is to cover the creation and production costs of the book: $ 50,000. The second objective is to raise funds to provide those institutions that are serving families affected by the Coronavirus; $ 200,000. Please give generously. Help me fulfill this child's dream and perpetuate love for his grandfather. Thank You!
Fly High Grandpa Lucio, we will cherish every moment we spent together. Stephen loves you to the moon and back a zillion times. We will miss you more then words can say. Love Esteban and Stephen.
