A mother lay her only son to rest

My son, my only son, was taken from this world prematurely, solely because of who he was. Devon Gildart's precious life was taken in Milwaukee, WI. He was a person who knew who he was as a person and who he wanted to be. He wasn't someone
who was in the streets or caused problems for anyone; in fact, he was the opposite. Devon was the type of person who would give you the shoes off his feet if you were in need. He enjoyed cooking, playing video games, hanging out with friends, and just being free. He had a big heart. Unfortunately, that big heart led to his UNJUST murder. Yes, during pride month, my son, better known as Brazil Johnson, a proud member of the LGBTQIA community, was murdered by the hand of someone who didn't appreciate the light that Devon brought into their lives. My son was the victim of a hate crime, and now I have to lay my only son to rest.
I know justice will be served in my heart because Devon was a child of God, and "Justice is mine sayeth the lord." So I am just asking, as a grieving mother, for a love offering to help lay my son to rest so he and I can be at peace. Although an unexpected tragedy, burial costs and funeral arrangements are not easily obtained. Any donation will be cherished with love and used to give my son the celebration he deserves. Thank you all for your time and prayers. Love and Light.
