Avery’s Light Lives On

A personal campaign sponsored by Lauren Mutti


Our son, Avery Isaiah Watkins, created and spread an amazing amount of joy over his short 21 years.  He took his own life on February 4, 2019.  Avery was a bright college student at Texas Tech University with a bright future. We did not know he had this kind of pain. No one in his life knew.  We wish he had let us know. We wish he had let a friend know. We wish he had reached out.  We wish he knew that there was another option.  We hope no other parent ever has to experience this kind of loss and pain. We want to use our tragedy for good.  We want Avery’s light to live on for the good of others.
