At just 4 years old, Raiden Gonzalez has lost both his parents. Coronavirus stole their lives four months apart, leaving Raiden with only a few years’ worth of memories to cherish for a lifetime.
With Raiden’s birthday on Sunday, Margie Bryant － the boy’s great-aunt － and her family wanted to find a way to make sure the boy knows how much he is loved, especially in the absence of his parents.
A "wave and roar" dinosaur-themed drive-by parade is set for November 28, organized by Bryant, who lives in Houston.
"It’s a milestone birthday," Bryant said. "We just want him (Raiden) to know that we’re going to be there for all of his birthdays and make sure he’s celebrated, and I know my niece has the cheesiest grin because she knows her boy is in good hands."
