My name is Bridgette Moore and I'm starting this campaign for the Watkins Family. I met April Watkins 12 years ago when her two sons, Lavious and Tyler, were in the Cub Scouts with my son.

On October 18, 2016,  April's oldest son, Lavious Brendan Watkins took his own life.  Lavious has a one-year old little girl.

This campaign will be used for the funeral expenses and to help the Watkins family through this difficult time.

Any amount of donation is appreciated. This is such an unexpected loss. The family is devastated. Prayers are needed and appreciated too. Lavious is survived by his father Lavious (Woogie) Watkins, his mother April Hueftle Watkins and his three younger siblings, Tyler, Christianna and Sunny and his daughter Scarlett Watkins.

Thank you all for your support!

I am not receiving any of the donations. All donations will be given directly to the Watkins Family.

Message from April Watkins and family:
As we prepare to celebrate Lavious' life tomorrow we would like to thank everyone for the love and support we have been shown. It would not be possible without all of you. So many people have stepped up to help in so many ways. There are no words to express the sadness and emptiness my family feels right now but you have helped us to be able to focus on healing. As with many things in life this type of tragedy comes with a financial burden and because of all of you we will not have to bare that burden. We can not thank everyone enough. Our family feels all of the love and support you have sent. I apologize for not responding to each and everyone of you individually, please understand that we are still grieving and learning how to live without Lavious. We read all of the beautiful things that have been written and we will share them with Scarlett when the time is right. For now please forgive is for being quiet while we heal and know we love you back. In times like this it is easy to ask God why and be upset, we are trying to build up our relationship with God right now and ask for your continued prayers.
Thank you!
