A father who lost his son in a car accident has dedicated a space along a lonely road to his memory.

A father who lost his son in a car accident has dedicated a place by the side of a lonely road to his memory. The man entered this location alone every night in the dark.

In 2003, a young man was killed in a tragic car accident in Richmond, California. Ray Olson’s kid was the youngster. Ray was torn by what had transpired and desired to establish a sacred space at the site of his son’s death. Ray felt that because Chevron, a multibillion-dollar multinational, owned the property, he would be barred from erecting a memorial to his son.

Ray created this location on his own initiative, without consulting the owner.
The man felt no one would know about this location and decided to keep it hidden. Ray returned to the place of his son’s death every night, tortured by grief.

After nearly 13 years of stillness, he found a ticket in the area of his construction alerting him that something else will be built there. Ray, like his kid, was attached to that location because it was the only thing that kept him connected to his memory.

When he first heard the message, he assumed they would destroy the site and take away his only source of consolation. He was taken aback after reading the full message. He never expected that the company would erect a fresh memorial to his son, who died 13 years ago.

The company worked together to produce a lovely memorial with a large inscription in honor of Ray’s kid. The memorial was built in Ray’s son’s honor and remembrance, according to the plaque.

Along with this great effort on Ray’s behalf, the firm also built a seat next to the memorial for visitors who want to see where Ray’s son was snatched by life too soon.
According to Chevron spokesman Joe Lorenz, this was Ray’s spot, and he no longer needed to hide there at night.
