Expenses for Kaidynn Maynes and Nici Widner

Friday, March 5th, Kaidynn's family received the heartbreaking news that she had passed away.  This unimaginable tragedy has been a shock to her family. Her parents,  Nici Widner and Joe Maynes are now trying to navigate planning a funeral for their precious daughter, something no parent should ever have to experience.

Kaidynn had the brightest smile and the most contagious laugh. She was so creative, spunky, funny, intuitive, wise beyond her years, and just flat-out adorable. She loved hunting, fishing, hiking, spending time with family, and making crafts. She also loved eating pickles, lemons, and cheesecake. She had an amazing talent for drawing, and she loved music. Kaidynn always held a strong face, and she always paid more attention to other peoples’ feelings than her own. Her death is a message that it’s okay to share hard feelings, to ask for help, to not let pain get in the way, to reach out, to recognize silent pain, and to be brave like she was.

We have created this GoFundMe account to help with these unexpected funeral expenses, and to lift some of the overwhelming and heartbreaking burden from her parents. Any amount would help tremendously and would be greatly appreciated.
