2023 Contributors – We Love our ‘Hive’

Our hearts ache with each family that is experiencing the loss of a young child. Grief is present for months and years. There is always a space at the table and in the family photo where this child should be. One way to acknowledge and remember a child is with a gift in memory of a little one. In 2023 these children were remembered with gifts in their memory:

Wyatt Bonus
Caius
Aiden Causey
Benji Chen
Hudson Drews
Sarah Kathryn Fargo
Hannah Hayes
Jaxsyn Keys

Donna Livengood
Garron Martin
Judy Lynn Meyer
Elliott Shelton
Mollie Smith
Tayjon
Bella Cypress Turner
MIles Hobbes Xu

We have an amazing “hive” of close to 150 people who make the mission of Buzzy’s Bees possible. Contributions of time, services, special skills, and generous gifts created the opportunity for us to extend our reach to 23 families with financial gifts and 10 others with story and art in 2023.

We humbly recognize you and thank you:
