“Hello, my aunt recently lost her 17 year old son from a self-inflicted gun wound to the head. He was her only son! She was a single parent but took care of her son the best she could,” the fundraiser reads. “Suicide/accidental was the cause of his death we are still trying to figure out why. But anything I mean anything can help her at this time of need. He was her only child. She was also an only child. It was always her and her son. Anything can help! Please keep my family in your prayers thank you so much.”
