Funeral Arrangements for Linsey Nkanang

We are Linsey's classmates.  We are from the REACH center at the Tacoma Good Will where we were studying to earn our GED with Linsey.  Because he was such a motivational speaker, an inspirational friend and loving person, we are asking for help to fund his funeral arrangements.  Linsey is from Nigeria and had only been living here for about 8 months.  Although, we only knew Linsey for about 2 months, the impact he had on our lives is immeasurable. He was always encouraging us all to take hold of all the opportunities we are given and to live life to the fullest.  He not only talked about these things, but he explempified them in the way he lived his life. We deeply miss him and think he deserves the best memorial service available.  His mother and twin sister, also Nigerian immigrants, do not have enough money to pay for his service.  Please help us raise money to honor this great young man and his legacy.
Linsey was only 17 years old when he passed away in a drowning accident on his very first camping experience in the United States.  We are comforted by the fact that his faith has led him to a better place after his life on earth ended so early and abruptly.
