Peyten Critchlaw funeral expenses

It is with great sadness and heartbreak that this GoFundMe page is being created. A good friend has lost his precious child, Peyten May. At just 6 years old Peyten has provided so much love and joy into this world. As Dale posted, “A father and a daughter’s love is forever.” May this beautiful angel rest in peace and be a guiding light to help her loved ones through this difficult time.

In the wake of such a sudden tragedy, anything we can do to help the family in this time of need is greatly appreciated. A majority of the expenses have been covered by Dale’s military benefits but the remainder he is paying for. Let’s help him out in his horrific time by lightening the financial burden of such a tragedy.

Please keep Dale and all of Peyten’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this unimaginable time.

Anything remaining will be put into CD's for Peyten's little brother Collin. 

As posted by Dale last night.:

“Well I've thought all day about if I should post something about this. Yesterday afternoon my baby girl, my heart and soul was taken from me suddenly. All who know Peyten know how much a joy she was to e around. Just being in her presence would put a smile on your face. The world is a lesser place out her. I love you baby more than I can ever explain. You rest easy munchkin until meet again.”

Services as posted by Dale this morning:

“This Sunday at the Smith-McKracken Funeral Home in Newton, family & close friends are invited to share the memory of Peyten May. Please wear purple (her favorite color) or a bright color, as this is what Peyten would have loved to see. The viewing will be from 2-4pm.

On Tuesday, doors will be open to the public from 4-7pm. There will be the memorial service, again please wear purple or a bright color.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to St Jude's Hospital, as Peyten always loved to help a lending hand and her memory of love and happiness can live on to help other children.”
