Memorial Fund for the Baden Family

On Tuesday, July 11th we lost a beautiful person, a loving mother, and a best friend. Lavonna not only brought happiness to her family but as well as everyone else around her. She would do anything for her boys; she told me just the other day that there was nothing that she enjoyed more than watching her boys playing the sports they love. Lavonna would work all night and stay up all day just to be with her boys. She was a welcoming person who could make you laugh and smile at any time of the day.  She will be dearly missed.

The money raised here will go to the Baden family to help pay for any memorial expenses and to help them get back on their feet. This was all so unexpected and the boys will need all the support they can get. Lovanna would want nothing more than to make sure her boys were well taken care of. 

Thank you for your support during this time in need.
