In loving memory of Ayden Michael and Keeton Leo Hawks

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Ahoskie, NC

Fundraiser ends on August 09, 2023

A Children’s Home will be constructed in Kenya in honor Ayden and Keeton. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to continue their legacy.

Ayden Michael Hawks and Keeton Leo Hawks, beloved sons of Christy Craig and Brandon Hawks, tragically passed away on July 9, 2023, due to a car accident in Bertie County, North Carolina. Ayden and Keeton were born in Suffolk, Virginia. Their lives were cut short, leaving a void in the hearts of their family and friends.

Quiet and composed, Ayden was wise beyond his years. He loved nature and found beauty in the smallest of God’s creations. Recently he found a love of photography because he could capture that beauty and hold it forever. He was a thinker, fixer, video game master, and technology aficionado. He embodied a sweet, calm, and peaceful spirit. That spirit made him an amazing big brother and loyal friend. His kind heart allowed him to love all people. His love for people instilled a desire to see that the world knew of God’s love and His sacrifice for all mankind, even to the point of overcoming his shyness to stand before the masses and share the gospel. He’d planned to preach to the nations, and he did.

Although Keeton was small in size and stature, he made up for it in personality and spirit. His joy and love of life filled the room. If it could be climbed, he climbed it. If it fit in a basketball hoop, he shot it. If it had wheels, he rode it. Everyone was Keeton’s friend even if they didn’t know it. He loved people with every ounce of his being. He made it his mission to make people smile and to grasp hold of the joy found in God. He was not ashamed of his love of God. It didn’t matter if he was in a restaurant or store, he would sing whatever song God laid on his heart. In one of Keeton’s songs he wrote, “No more fear on me. God is with you. He has not given you a spirit of fear, but a spirit of light.”

Thanks for your support during this difficult time.
