According to a report, a boy from San Antonio, who will turn 5 this month, has been left orphaned after his parents of coronovirus claimed within 100 days of each other.
“He misses his mother because he was a maternal uncle,” his grandmother, Rosie Salinas, told NBC News Saturday about Raiden Gonzalez. “It was only this morning that he told me that he wanted his mother to come back and he just wanted her back.”
“I mean, what should I tell him?” You know, so I told them that they are now watching over us and protecting us, ”said Salinas, 29-year-old Andean’s mother, Mariya, aged 29, who died in October with her father, 33-year-old , Died soon after his death. Succumbed to illness.
Though still suffering loss, Salinas said she wants to make her grandson’s November 28 birthday as enjoyable as possible — so she and her sister came up with an idea for a drive-by celebration, NBC News reported.
“We have several truck clubs, bikers, mustang clubs, classic cars, jeep clubs, and fire departments. This is going to be a big change, ”she told the network.
Salinas said a colleague of the boy’s father tested positive for the disease and then the father came down with it, as well, becoming “one of the two sickest people in the hospital”.
Aden died on 26 June and then Mariya died on 5 October – just hours after that she began to feel ill.
Salinas told NBC News, “Mariya wanted to build a memorial for Adan, but she never got it.” She said she is planning a memorial for her daughter, who was a teacher, and son-in-law after the holidays.
“I put him in the same preschool,” he said. “They really take good care of him. They know what his position is. “
On Saturday, Raiden was delighted when a surprise package containing a small dinosaur toy arrived.
“He likes dinosaurs, he likes monster trucks, he likes hot wheels,” Salinas said. “But being that he chose the dinosaur theme for his birthday, he really liked it.”
Amidst the anguish, Salinas says Raiden drives him forward.
“Just with his friendly and constant reminders of how much he loves me. He is always thanking me for taking care of him, but I am ready to just think about him. “This is a difficult situation to process.”
