Fundraiser for Caeli Lea Ann Ratcliffe's Funeral

My brother and sister-in-law lost their 6-year-old daughter, Caeli Lea Ann Ratcliffe, in a house fire on November 25, 2020, shortly before 6 pm. Caeli and the family just celebrated her 6th birthday on November 22, 2020. They also lost their 3 pets. Two dogs and a kitten. My mother was also severely burned and airlifted to the burn center in Augusta, GA after attempting to save Caeli from the fire. 

My brother (John Ratcliffe), mom (Barbie Newton), and sister-in-law (Julie Ratcliffe) lost everything in a house fire. 

I'm turning to the community to help raise funds for funeral costs, costs of medical bills, and costs of replacing all of their belongings. They also didn't have house insurance and are now currently displaced until they can find a permanent solution. 

$1, $5, $10... anything that you can spear will help us desperately as we navigate the next few days into the Thanksgiving holiday. Prayers and shares are very much appreciated!
