Help lay Jess to rest

Our sister Jess Whitledge passed away early this morning suddenly in a fatal car accident. She leaves behind two boys, ages 12 and 3, and her husband Ray, as well as four nephews she was helping raise. Jess was only 33 years old.  Jess unselfishly dedicated 100% of her time to raising her boys and helping raise her nephews. Because of this, she unfortunately had no life insurance through employment. Her husband works hard as a contract worker and does not have benefits through his job either.

The family is in utter shock and are unsure how they will meet the funeral expenses. Please donate and help our brother lay his wife and the mother of his children to rest. Any money donated will go to help pay for funeral costs. Anything beyond that will help Ray cover everyday expenses while taking a bit of time off work to grieve and care for his grieving children. Please give anything you can afford to give. If you can't give, please find it in your heart to share this story.
