Celebration of Life

Sunday, October 16, 2022 from noon to 5 pm

Dear friends and supporting community,

We would love for you to join us at Oli's Annual Celebration of Life on Sunday, October 16, 2022 from 12-5 pm. Depending on weather conditions, the venue will be either the Community Center in Village Homes (indoor and outdoor) or the Davis Cemetery District (outdoors, close to Oli) or a combination of both places which are located in Davis, CA. (Next week we will let you know the final location). Despite an emotionally challenging year of grieving, we continue to live Oli's story of love. We know that Oli's kind soul, intellectual curiosity, and cheerful spirit has brought so much joy, love, peace, reflection, and unity to our families and communities. We are honoring Oli's love for life, and it would be our pleasure to do so with you and your families who have provided us with love and support.

Please bring your picnic mats or chairs, a meal to share with other families (it is a potluck), games, and an up-lifting spirit. Also, please wear light blue and white (Oli's favorite colors).

RSVP via this Google Survey link.

A message to the CCE community from Oli's parents, Agustin and Michaela, Izel and Oli (in spirit):

Dear friends and family,

On September 11th and 12th of 2021 our son Oli enjoyed the happiness and celebratory spirit our friends, families, and acquaintances brought to his life during the beautiful picnic gatherings we had for him. Some of you may remember that despite his weak condition, Oli wanted to have fun (like any happy child) and he was able to briefly engage in a few activities with some of you and your children. I vividly remember the morning of Sunday, September 12th, when with great excitement Oli told me that he really enjoyed the picnic we had the day before and that he was looking forward to the picnic later that day. It was beautiful to see his smile, joyful spirit, and zest for life.

It has been extremely difficult for us to accept the plans mother nature had for Oli, but we want to maintain his radiant smile, endless optimism, and the good heart he always expressed. Thus, we would like to invite your family to join us for a picnic in honor of Oli. Please bring your own mat, hats, umbrella, food, drinks, and some toys, games, and balls to share and play with other families.

Date: Sunday, September 11th, 2022

Location: Amphitheater of Village Homes, next to the Community Center. 2661 Portage Bay East, Davis, CA

Time: 11:30 am to 3:00 pm

Finally, we apologize for the short notice, but it is still difficult to decide how we want to honor and keep Oli’s spirit alive around us.

Con todo nuestro amor y agradecimiento,

Agustin, Michaela, Izi, and Oli (in spirit)
