Funeral cost for Caylee

The worst thing a parent could ever be faced with is having a funeral for their child. It is heartbreaking devastating beyond what words can describe. It takes various levels of support and help to get families through the unbearable days, weeks and months ahead.

On Friday, August 31st, beautiful and fun-loving 6 year old Caylee Isabella Sampson tragically lost her life from a horrific accident. Her mom, Rometta Sampson, and family are struggling with the reality of life without their precious Caylee. As a parent, we never imagine this is something we will have to go through, and therefore don’t plan or save for an expense like this, especially on a teacher’s salary. Unfortunately, it is not just the expense of a funeral, the cost of the casket, but transporting her back to the Houston area, and so many other expenses that will come.
We have set up this GoFundMe account to help Rometta and her family with the funeral, transportation, and legal expenses. Any amount – large or small – is GREATLY appreciated!
