Memorial Fund for Billy Avondet

At only 45 and following a fun & celebratory family reunion the previous night in his home, William "Billy" A. Avondet, Jr. suddenly passed away from a heart attack on Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017.  

Technically, Billy was my nephew but in reality, he was more than that - We grew up together, so he was my little brother.

This campaign is to assist the family with final costs and for Billy's two kids' educational expenses: Tripp is currently a student at East Carolina University and Hannah hopes to attend a cosmetology/beauty trade school in New York or Wilmington, NC after she graduates high school.

Any amount of donation is helpful & greatly appreciated but above all, please keep the family in your heart, thoughts and prayers.
Everyone is experiencing a shocked sadness at this news.
We miss you, Billy!

UPDATE: All are welcome to attend the Memorial Celebration!
