Loren's Memorial and Funeral fund

On Monday September 25th 2017 we lost Loren Daniel Barkley.  This tragic loss is shared by so many who were privledged to know him.
Loren was 19 years old with a bright future ahead of him.  He was lover and fiancee to Milamar who must now try to continue on without him. He left behind 2 sisters who loved him beyond belief.  They were each others all after the passing of their mother Dawn.  He was a son to his father Loren .Grandson to me  and cousin, brother, friend, co-worker to so many. He will be greatly missed by his family.  No matter where the relationship came from Loren was liked by so many in our community.
Loren had a wonderful love of music.  All music.  He wrote beats and shared them with others.  He was able to play the alto sax, keyboard and piano.  When he was little he would walk around with a "getto blaster" on his shoulder singing Metalica songs.  He attended their concert here in Indio and came home with a split lip. He worked Desert Trip in 2016 and had great memories from the experience.
Loren wanted to study political science.  He was engaged with all that is happening in our world and took time to educated himself on current affairs.
Loren worked inside Costco for the company that sells flowers.  He loved his job and often talked of others who also worked there.  Most particularly a man named Michael.  He spoke highly of his boss and all Costco staff.
Loren left an impression on all who met him. 
I am trying to raise funds for his funeral and memorial.  I am able to secure the plot toughing the one his grandfather is in which will put him by his baby brother Joshua and his Mother Dawn and step-father Devon who all preceeded him in passing.  This is the last plot in this section of the cemetary.  The cost of the plot is 900.00.  The coroner is 300.00 and must be paid first.  His cremation if done by Rubioux will cost 1600.00.  I have not yet requested the cost of his headstone so I did not add the cost here.  I will also need funds for the place where his service is held as well as paying someone to officiate.
