Michael's Funeral Costs

This fundraiser is for the cost of Michael Whitchsett's funeral expenses. The funeral home informed us that it could be up to $10,000 for an immediate family viewing and casket burial. We are asking to reach the goal of $7,000 to just help pay for a good chunk of the costs, although going over that is much appreciated. Unfortunately, we are on a time stamp and would like to reach our goal before the end of next week, 1/22. Any little bit helps and gets us closer to giving Michael a proper burial and place to rest. All funds will go directly to Michael's mother, Rae Orozco, and is greatly appreciated.

Michael Whitchsett was a fun-loving, caring father, son, and brother. A 'give you the shirt on his back' kind of man. Always ready to lend a hand for physical labor or a shoulder for emotional support. Anything you needed, he was there without question or hesitation. Michael has three beautiful children that were the center of his world. Now our world has lost one more ray of sunlight while Heaven has gained another angel. May he rest in peace.
