Please join us in safeguarding the educational future of this incredible four-year-old who tragically lost his father far too soon in life.

On the morning of August 20, 2012, William Matthew "Billy" Johnson passed away at the young age of thirty-one. Of the many loving family members and friends that survived him, none is more important than his incredible four-year-old son, William Matthew Johnson, Jr., born November 7, 2007.

The only thing more tragic than the untimely death of Billy is the fact that William has now lost his father and primary "bread winning" parent. Those who have had the pleasure of meeting William know that he is remarkably intelligent for his age, and we all have the highest of expectations for his future. Unfortunately, despite a well developed plan and the best of intentions to provide for William's future, Billy was taken from us before he was able to actualize these plans.

Less than a week before his death, Billy spoke extensively about how important William's future was to him and about his desire to set up a 529 Savings Plan for William. The proceeds of these donations will do just that. Notwithstanding the small administrative fees charged by the website, 100% of these funds will be placed in a 529 College Savings Plan as an investment in William's education.

Please join us in keeping Billy's dream alive and safeguarding the future of this amazing little guy. No donation is too small, and every bit of your generosity is greatly appreciated.
