Honoring the Memory of Bryant Smith

Bryant Smith passed away on November 7, 2021. Bryant loved being with his friends while playing softball, basketball, floor hockey, bowling and exercising at Fort Lewis. He walked with his brother Jameson and took rides, did crafts and cooked with his mentor, Alex. He could brighten your day with his smile and did that regularly. He will be sorely missed  by his family and all of his friends. Rest in Peace Bryant. To make a donation in Bryant's honor use the form below and type Bryant Smith Memorial Fund in the comments.

In Memoriam: Jasmine Ewing

Jasmine loved children. Throughout the years, she volunteered her time to assist her mom in her work with children with disabilities. She always asked questions to understand more about their development.  She loved meeting the kids and families and helping with special activities like family picnics in the summer or delivering holiday goodies at Christmas. 

She would be honored to know that you are supporting the Early Intervention Program that provides assistance to families of children birth to 3 with developmental delays to give them their best start.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, ~Debra Ewing, Early Intervention Service Coordinator
