Honoring the life of Brody Wilson

On Friday, June 12, for reasons that we will never fully understand, Brody made the decision to end his life. Steve and Carla are understandably devastated by the loss of their precious son. I’m setting up this fund to help them meet the practical needs and expenses related to his death. Please consider donating, to help cover the medical and funeral expenses. I know that we all feel so sad for and with them. This is a tangible way to meet a real need and alleviate some of the stress, so they can focus of the reality of grieving and helping their children cope.
        If you knew Brody, you know that he was an extraordinary young man who was full of potential. Brody was such a great kid. Smart, kind, talented, and driven. He was a gift. His loss will be felt forever. I would do anything to bring him back. Sadly, that isn’t possible. None of us know how to help, because this loss is so great. Practically speaking, meeting this financial need would be a huge blessing. Removing this stress from our dear friends would be forever appreciated. Please consider donating to cover the cost of Brody’s medical care and funeral expenses.
