Upon feedback, I am raising the goal once again. Thank you everyone, you have been so completely and selflessly giving. But anyone who's buried a loved one knows how expensive everything can be, from medical expenses to funerals to time off work. So I have decided to keep it going. The parents are extremely grateful, the love shown has been enormous. Once again, donate if you would like to help, but just posting a story about Matt or Cameron or well-wishing for the parents will help too. Thank you!!!

I wanted to clarify my reasoning for raising the limit. This is my first time using this site, so if people wanted to continue donating, then I wanted them to be able to do so. I'm not sure how much the funerals will cost, but this will hopefully cover the costs, and maybe even more. The parents are most likely taking off work, so the extra money could benefit them in any way that helps them to heal. I originally set the goal as $10,000, thinking it was a lofty goal. I was so very wrong. Thank you everyone once again, in showing them and everyone that we can all pull together in a time of need and become one big FAMILY!

I am amazed with this incredible show of support from family, friends, and the community! Thank you to everyone who is giving to these two grieving families. It makes a difference to know people care. Your kind words and memories are also very appreciated, so please feel free to comment, even if you cannot donate.

My brothers attend NHS and I graduated from there. It is so sad hearing of kids passing, especially so young and when you them. I know my brothers are completely devistated. I did not know Cameron but somewhat knew Matt. It's heartbreaking. I would love to be able to donate to both families, but I just don't have any money. Know my thoughts and prayers are going out for everyone.

Many prayers for both families. Never met the boys.. heard tons of wonderful things about Cameron from his mother Gina when we worked to gether. She was always so proud and bragging on him and showing off pictures as a mother should. Sending hugs to her. They are both Angels of God.

Carol is my niece and my heart breaks for her loss. Matthew wanted to be a Marine and I have to say that he would have been one of the proud, the few. Matthew always had a smile on his face and he will be missed so much. I didn't know Cameron, but my heart breaks for his family too. May God bring comfort to all of us that loved these two boys. Two more heavenly angels..

Laura, I think you are doing a wonderful job! Raising the goal is a hard decision to make, but I believe you did the right thing. When I lost my child, due to him being a child, everything was offered to us for free(he was born prematurely), but the headstone we wanted cost us almost 1000.00. I'm praying that the money can be raised for these boys to cover all expenses, because that is the last thing a patent would want, and I know I stressed and cried wondering how I would pay for my sons headstone. My prayers and thoughts go out to the parents, friends, and loved ones of these young men. Two angels taken too soon. My condolences to their families! I am just astounded at the response of the community to help support these young men and their families. My heart breaks for you.
