Help Pay for Rusty's Funeral arrangements

Quick Note we just noticed: Go fund mentions at the top that Robert Howard is the beneficiary: The reason for this is Robert is Rusty's Pastor and is the one handling Rusty's final arrangements. Since he is the one that will be handing the money over to the funeral home. I set the fundraiser up so that the money goes to him. 

On August 17th 2021 at 05:15 Rusty Plush lost his battle with cancer.


One of his final wishes is to be buried and not cremated. Unfortunately he doesn't have life insurance or enough money in assets to be able to pay for a funeral and burial.


We are trying to raise money to help pay for Rusty's funeral so we can fulfill his final wishes.
