ConcordRENTS Celebrates the Life of Juan Ramon Guerrero

On October 19th, the life of Juan Ramon Guerrero was celebrated by family, friends, and ConcordRENTS team members.

Juan was always a member of the Concord family. At a young age, his family resided at a ConcordRENTS community where he participated in their Monster Club youth program. Juan is the nephew of Lourdes Morales, a 16 year team member who is a Monster Club Regional Support Coordinator.

Juan was a 22 year old victim of the Pulse Night Club shooting in Orlando. Touched by the family’s loss, Concord planted a memorial garden adjacent to the Community Support Center that includes a lovely crepe myrtle tree surrounded by beautifully colored flowers and a bronze marker dedicating this area to Juan.

The memorial and dedication ceremony included 22 statements highlighting Juan’s many life-affirming attributes proudly read by ConcordRENTS team members.

“Juan respected everyone who surrounded him”

“Juan was one of the most loving human beings, he was so giving”

“Juan was honest with everything he did”

The ceremony concluded with the beautiful singing of “Let There Be Peace on Earth”.

The family members present included Mayra Guerrero and Juan Ramon Guerrero (Juan’s parents), Osvaldo Vasquez, Angelique Echavarria, Hector Morales, Jeanette Moya, Alfonso Moya, and Lourdes Morales.

Concord Honors Pulse Victim

On 8/17/2016, we had a memorial tree ceremony to commemorate a Pulse Victim who was a resident of Marbella Pointe. The tree was provided and labor donated on behalf of our landscape vendor, Brightview. Ownership generously provided a lunch for the attendees, covered July’s rent and provided the plaque that is displayed in front of the tree.
Gilberto Silva Menendez “Junito” moved into our community with his mother and grandmother on September 10, 2015. He will be remembered as a resident who was always smiling and full of life. He graduated from Atenas College in Manati, Puerto Rico with an Associate’s Degree in Respiratory Therapy. He moved with his family from Puerto Rico to Florida in 2010 in search of new opportunities.


Gilberto will be remembered for his love of dance, imitating famous artists and making everyone around him smile and laugh. He was always the life of any party! Some of his goals were to travel the world, live a fulfilled life with the people he loved and follow his love for the arts. His dream was to become famous one day! As a community, we have been greatly impacted by this loss and we will continue to remember Junito and smile as he would want us to.

ConcordRENTS ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

 

August is the month to recognize and stand up against ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS is a very progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Over 5,600 people in the United States are diagnosed with ALS every year and as many as 30,000 Americans can have ALS at any given time.
Last August, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge went viral across various social media platforms as people from all walks of life participated by dumping buckets of ice water on themselves, challenging their friends to do the same. When someone was tagged and received a challenge from his or her friend, they had 24 hours to post a video and challenge 3 more friends or forfeit by way of a charitable donation to the ALS Foundation… many people choosing to do both. Over 2.4 million people have been tagged in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos circulating Facebook, alone.

Well, the challenge is back! On August 1st, the ALS Association relaunched the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for 2015. The message is simple:
#EveryAugustUntilACure is the official hashtag of the ALS Association. Last year, the Ice Bucket Challenge raised over $100 million dollars for the ALS Association.
Although the origins of the idea of dumping ice water on one’s head are vague, the ALS Association’s message could not be any clearer. So, ConcordRENTS challenges you to participate in this year’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and donate towards this amazing cause.
