Mason Naimo Memorial Fund

by AWS Automotive

October 10th, 2014

We've decided to wear mohawks in memory of Mason Naimo.  The Masons are a local Ventura family grieving the loss of their 6-year-old son who passed away on September 28, 2014.  

There is never a good time to say goodbye, and parting ways with a young child is perhaps the most difficult loss of all.  Mason was a fiesty spirit who wore his hair in a mohawk, so in honor and remembrance of him we've decided to adopt the style as well - "Mohawks for Mason".
A memorial fund raiser is underway - you may contribute by visiting this link  AWS Automotive proudly supports the Mason Naimo Memorial Fund and we greatly encourage you to donate whatever is in your heart to the cause - the Naimo family sincerely appreciates any support you may offer.  Mason's memorial service is scheduled for tomorrow, October 11, 2014 at Camarillo Community Church - service begins at 1pm.  All are invited and we encourage you to wear bright colors and mohawks in celebration of Mason's life.

If you can't contribute funding you may still feel free to attend the service or reach out to the Naimo family to offer your condolences.  Please share this with your friends and family.
Thank you.
