Headstone for Riley Fillingim


Riley passed away a year ago on January 19, 2014 at the very young age of 12.  His death was sudden, unexpected and shocking.  The loss of this sweet little boy sent our lives tumbling into a world of grief and heartache.  We have decorated his gravesite for every occasion and  we keep it neat and clean, but we have always wanted to purchase Riley a tombstone to mark his grave.  We just haven't been able to that yet.  We are still paying on the loan we attained for the cost of his funeral.  A dear friend/relative suggested we try this site  to help raise the money needed to purchase his tombstone.  We don't want to impose on anyone or make anyone feel sorry for us, but if you can donate to this cause, know that we would appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.  The amount you choose to donate is totally up to you, you can remain annoymous if you choose,  just know that your donation, thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.  We hope that you had a chance to meet and get to know Riley while he was alive. If you did, we know he touched your heart with his beautiful spirit and that wonderful smile he always had on his face.  May God Bless you and all the special  loved ones in your life.  Remember to tell them how much you love them every day, for tomorrow is never promised.
