A homeowner association in Houston, Texas, left a note at the memorial for a deceased 8-year-old boy telling his grieving mother to remove it.
Abraham â€śBubbaâ€ť Garza was 8 years old when, in 2012, he was hit by a car while attempting to save a squirrel in the street. He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Bubbaâ€™s mother, Crystal Garza, set up a memorial shortly after his passing at the spot where he was hit, which has remained ever since.Â
Late last week, Garza found a notice at the site of the memorial, left by a local homeowner association.
â€śSorry for your loss!â€ť the notice read. â€śPlease remove from median.â€ť
KTRK attempted to contact the HOA for comment, to no avail. A resident near the memorial told the news station that heâ€™d like the display removed, as it has affected his ability to sell his house.Â
Garza, however, is fighting to keep the memorial up, saying that it reminds her â€śthat everybody cares.â€ť
â€śIt would devastate me again,â€ť she told KTRK.
