Please help lay baby Angel Ray Olivas to rest

No one should ever have to hear their 5 year old ask, “Why can’t I be a big sister anymore?”

The Olivas Family (Carlos-father, Gracie-mother, sons: Anthony and Alias, and daughters: Areana and Natalia) were in the beginning stages of welcoming their newest member to their family when a parent’s worst nightmare occurred. When Carlos and Gracie went to experience the most exciting event of pregnancy, the ultrasound to learn the sex of their new bundle of joy, they were met with the horror of not being able to hear the sweetest and warmest sound to new or experienced parents’ ears, the heartbeat. That day Gracie was rushed to the hospital and waited till the next day to deliver her lifeless child, and because for the love of something so near and dear to them they painfully but fittingly decided to name him Angel Ray Olivas. Sadly, the distraught couple was forced with an even worse dilemma, to bury their child or not. Because of their unconditional for the most important people in their lives, their children, they chose to do what every tortured parent would do in their situation and bury sweet baby Angel. With the hardest decision of their lives behind them, their darkest days weren’t. Because no one prepares for the torture of burying a sweet innocent life, Gracie and Carlos are now fighting to find the money to pay for the burial services their baby needs. Due to terrible situation the couple is in, they have lost wages because they are still grieving and understandably not working. They family needs help to bury their lovable child and adorable brother and to provide needed school supplies for the innocent children this untimely tragedy has caused.
