Asher Krop, a one-year-old boy from Decatur, was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia on Dec. 11.

He unexpectedly passed away on Dec. 18. Now members of the community are stepping up to help his grieving family.

A donation fund has been set up to help with medical bills and funeral expenses.

“The family is NOT interested in gaining unneeded funds,” the fundraising website says. “Any remaining funds will be donated to a charity of their choice in honor of Asher’s life.”

Asher is survived by his parents, sisters, grandparents, uncles and an aunt. A memorial service will be held on Dec. 23 at the Solarium in Oakhurst, starting at 9:30 a.m.

His obituary says Asher was, “A light in our lives.”
