The 13-year-old boy who brought a whole community together to bring an early Christmas to Youngsville will be laid to rest this week.

Relatives and friends of the family of Lane Begnaud are invited to attend the visitation at Martin & Castille Funeral Home Southside location on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

A private family-only funeral service will be held Wednesday.

Lane passed away on Thursday, October 11, 2018 after an 18-month battle with bone cancer.

He was a lover of Christmas, and in the weeks before his passing, the community of Youngsville came together to decorate their neighborhoods so he could enjoy one more Christmas.

Godspeed to you sweet angel.
