Funeral Expenses for Ryan Westfall

It is with a heavy heart, that I have to say my 22 yr old cousin, Ryan Westfall, took him own life Wednesday March 14, 2018. Ryan was a very genuine person with a pure soul. He was the type of person that would be there for you no matter what. He loved his mother Mishele, his father Chris, his sisters Sabrina, Kirsten, Meagan, his niece Kali, and his newborn nephew Kayden with all of his heart. If you knew Ryan, you know he liked listening to music and hanging out with friends. I know for a fact he touched alot of people with his kind words and acceptance. He never judged anyone and wasn't afraid to speak his mind.

Unfortunately due to his sudden passing, our family is struggling to come up with the funds to give Ryan the proper ceremony he deserves. That being said, I ask any and all of you, if you have any extra money to give to the family for funeral expenses we would all be eternally grateful. Even a dollar can help.

If we are able to raise a substantial amount of money we plan to donate the rest to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in America. My family doesn't want anyone to feel the loss of a loved one due to suicide. If you or a loved one is struggling with thoughts of suicide I urge you to either contact the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-[phone redacted] or contact anyone. Reach out and help eachother.

On behalf of the family, I'd like to thank everyone in advance for your donations and really appreciate you taking the time to read this. Ryan mattered. Everyone matters. Everyone has a loved one or someone that cares about them. Please know that no matter what you are NOT alone.

Rest in Peace Ryan. You deserved better.
