EUGENE, Ore. — It’s been nearly three weeks since 5-year-old Ronan Burgess lost his life due to complications from the H1N1 virus. His mother, Calandra, said their home is still filled with memories of her little cuddle bug.

“Everyday that I’m in this house, it kills me,” Calandra Burgess said, looking over at a collage of photos capturing Ronan’s smiling face. “I mean I see him in his big sister’s bedroom, annoying her. And her doing his nails.”

Ronan died in late December due to complications from the H1N1 virus.

On Sunday, friends and family will be getting together to honor Ronan’s life. The wake will be held at Putters, one of Ronan’s favorite places to go.

Calandra told our reporters that Ronan received the nasal flu vaccine in November.

“All three of my children had the nasal spray. My other two kids didn’t get sick at all,” said Burgess.
