Tyler "Ty" Russell Memorial

On Thursday, July 13, 2017, my sweet, perfect baby nephew, Ty, was taken away by what appears to be S.I.D.S. (sudden infant death syndrome). He was only 7 weeks old. His mom, dad, and two big sisters are completely devastated. Ty was a very happy and healthy baby with no physical signs of any trouble. He enjoyed cuddling and snuggling "Elliot," his favorite giraffe paci. He had a unique little smile that melted our hearts. He touched the lives of everyone who was blessed to know him. He is greatly loved and will be forever missed. 

I am using this fund as an opportunity for anyone who is willing, able, and wanting to help. Nothing will ever compensate this little life lost; however, helping to relieve the financial burden that comes in the wake of this tragedy will help during such a difficult time. Any additional money raised beyond what is needed for the memorial services will be given to others going through these same unfortunate circumstances. Thank you to everyone for the generous love and support!
