Since the novel Coronavirus's outbreak, many families have been robbed of the love and happiness they enjoy from seeing their loved ones. Such is the case for little Raiden Gonzalez, whose parents passed away after they contracted the viral ailment.

Raiden's parents Mariah and Adan Gonzalez lost their lives after contracting the respiratory illness. Adan passed on first before his wife followed suit a few days later.

In the following weeks, a GoFundMe account was opened for four-year-old Raiden, who presently lives with his grandmother. On the GoFundMe page, a certified description was given concerning the sad event that had him orphaned.

The grandma explained that the family's ordeal had started a few days after Adan's co-worker came down with the virus.

The narrative addressed donors while explaining that the donation would make funeral arrangements for the little boy's parents. At the same time, the other funds would go into taking care of him and his grandma, who is also his caregiver. The page described late Mariah:

"Mariah's bubbly personality, amazing teaching and makeup skills, her joy of motherhood and beautiful smile will be so beyond missed…"

The GoFundMe goal was set at $25,000, and so far, the account has garnered donations valued at $45,979. New updates also show that Raiden's birthday is coming up, and the family would love for many to join them in a drive-through parade to help honor his big day.

In a recent interview, Raiden's grandma, Rozie Salinas, who is still going through the trauma of losing her loved ones, made it known that the tot missed his mom so much and he just wants her back. However, Salinas always tells him that his parents had become angels and were watching over them.

The grandma explained that the family's ordeal had started a few days after Adan's co-worker came down with the virus. He was soon infected but was said to have been one of the sickest at the hospital. He died a few days later at the age of 33. His wife, who was planning a memorial, also lost her life to COVID-19 at 29.

Salinas and her family are staying strong for Raiden, and to this effect, she planned a drive-through party, which she noted would be a splendid affair because of the large turnouts so far. Salinas said of the dinosaur-themed occasion:

"We have several truck clubs, bikers, Mustang clubs, classic cars, Jeep clubs, plus the fire department. It's going to be a huge turnout…"
