Welcome to Daffron Elementary PTA

Special Announcement for Ethan Scott May, Former Daffron Student

Ethan Scott May passed away on June 14, 2016. He was only 14 years old. His parents, Paige Brettel-May and Steven May, and his sister, Riley May, request your attendance to help lay him to rest on Tuesday, June 21, 2016.

 

Church services will be held at 10 AM at Prestonwood Baptist Church. Following the service, the family will receive condolences in the Fireside Room. The burial will follow at 1 PM at Ridgeview Cemetery in Allen, TX. The church and funeral services are open to the public. The family regrets that due to time constraints and limited resources, they are keeping the reception private (invitation only) for the family and closest friends. However, the family is planning an open-invitation celebration of Ethan's life to take place before the new school year. Ethan's family would like the opportunity for all of the children and parents who loved him to have the chance to gather in remembrance of his life and spirit. The details will be posted on social media when available.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of your choosing in Ethan's honor.
