September 8, 2017 21:54 pm · 17 comments

A tragedy in California’s central valley has taken the life of a student in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.

The beautiful boy pictured above is 9-year-old Brandon Flores. Brandon was a fourth grader at Ygnacio Valley Elementary School in Concord, and previously attended Cambridge Elementary School, which is also in Concord, according to the MDUSD.

Brandon was killed in a vehicle collision in the central valley on September 4, 2017. Further details of the collision are not available at this time.

His family is asking for help with funeral and other expenses. As you can imagine, they’re going through the worst time of their life, so anything you can donate to Brandon’s family would be appreciated beyond words. Even a few dollars will go a long way.

Cute kid, always smiling. Sorry for the loss. I can’t begin to imagine the pain of losing a child. May he, Rest in Peace!

The auto insurance policy might include a cash advance that can be collected and used immediately for funeral expenses, but you have to know to ask for it. I’m told they don’t always remind their insured of this because they don’t want to pay it if they don’t have to. It can be substantial, so it’s worth asking about it. At a time when a family is in crisis, the last thing they’re concerned about is reading their insurance policy, so this is something that is so easily missed. I lived the same nightmare and was very fortunate to have an agent who called and told me about it, otherwise I would have never known it was available.

my deepest sympathy.
I wish they would have included a little more family info on their go-fund me page. I normally don’t donate with so little info, but made an exception this time.

Que descanses en Paz, angelito precioso.😢
