Lawson Hebert was granted his angel wings at 7 months old on Saturday, January 26, 2013 following a lifelong illness. He peacefully passed away in the loving arms of his family at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends. His life may have been short, but he experienced more than most do in a lifetime. Although he was so weak physically, he astonished us with his ability to fight on. He loved listening to and looking at his favorite seahorse named "Oliver". He gave the best kisses with his sweet puckered lips. He touched so many lives in his very short time, but the quality of his life far exceeded the quantity of the life he lived. His gentle smile could melt the hearts of everyone around him. Visitation will be held at Greenoaks Funeral Home, 9595 Florida Blvd on Monday, January 28, 2013 from 5pm to 9pm and on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 from 10am until service time at 12pm.
