Lawson J. Aerts Memorial Fund

My name is Dean, I am an uncle, bother, and best friends with this beautiful family who has unfortunatley just experienced the tragic loss of their son/brother. 

As I type this I have tears rolling down my face, no one should ever have to go through this.  

If I could tell Lawson anything I would tell him this:
When you came into this earth you were so loved by so many, and these brothers were ready to so show you all that life had to offer.  Your parents NEVER left your side throughout your journey, holding your hand, reading your favorite books, and asking that GOD take care of you.  And when it was time, they let God take your hand.  
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the pow'r of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

Due to this unexpected circumstance I had to do something, so I have set up this page in order for people to express there feelings as well as help with the financial concerns for this LOVED family.  I also have set up an account with Capital Credit Union under Dennis Aerts Family so donation will be accepted at all locations.

Any donation no matter big or small will be greatly blessed, and if you do not have the means to donate, prayers and support at this difficult time will be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to help MY family and words can not express my gratitiude to each and everyone of you.  

Fly high beautiful angel, and be the brightest star at night for your family.  WE all love you so much and will forever be in our hearts little man.
