Rebecka Carnes Memorial Fund
On behalf of her parents, I have started this to raise money to help them with Becka's final expenses.
Please keep her loved ones in your thoughts as we all try to come to terms with what has happened. She had people in her life that loved her fiercely and are devastated.
There is no moment like the present, my dear friends and family. Don't let life ever become so busy that you don't have a moment to stop and be kind to someone. Let love and gentleness shine in the wake of this violence.
I am deeply sorry for any confusion. I have followed up directly with Nathan Carnes (Rebecka Carnes' father) who did verify that the other account is legitimate. The other GoFundMe was created by his girlfriend's family (Maryanne Weekly), however, both accounts are going into the same bank account that is being shared by Rebecka's parents. We cannot merge them, but in the end all proceeds are going to the same place. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we sorted this out. It is amazing to know that the community members were looking out for us like this and ensuring that everything was above board.
I am friends with Rebecca Prinz, Nathan Carnes fiancée and she got the support of the family as well it seems. I am so sorry for your loss to those who loved this beautiful young woman From the FB page of the other accounts owner: My name is Maryanne Weeks. I am from Texas and the Aunt of Rebcca Prinz who is the Fiance of Rebecka Carnes father Nathan Carnes. I had Nathan's permission to start this account to help pay funeral expenses and start a possible scholarship in Rebecka's name. Nathan is also considering a donation to the Roseburg Fire Department depending on funds raised. Nathan Carnes and Rebecca Prinz are in the process of setting up an account that these donated funds can be deposited to. On behalf of Rebecca and Nathan we thank you all for you donations, your thoughts, and your prayers.
Don't worry who has the correct account; it makes no difference to us. We just want to help. I have been in your shoes, I understand the pain and confusion, it is normal, in that it is abnormal. You don't know which way to go. Its OK. My donation, and probably every other donation was to keep the pain at bay. The funeral is real, it is going to cost. It crushed me at one time with an unexpected tragic death. i only hope the little we can do is to relive a little burden and take care of this for your family. So don't worry, who had the correct page - heal yourselves. We in Oregon are with you.
I am so sorry for your loss. I new rebecka and was wonting to attend her memorial. When will that be? My prayers go out to you and your family.
Thank you Lisa. Our heavy hearts are in prayer for you all. Much love being sent from Texas
I'm sharing this, because I have nothing to give. I don't even know if Nathan remembers me, but we went to school together up until 6th grade. I've thought of you often over the years, all of the friends I left behind, and I am heartbroken over your loss. No parent should ever bury their child. You are all in my thoughts, and have my love. Love and light to you and yours.
You can merge the two accounts, that is what they did for Chris Mintz and it has really helped with the confusion. My prayers go to your entire family. This was such a horrendous tragedy and you have all my support and prayers. God Bless.
This is the second gofundme I have seen for her. Just want to make sure all of the money is going to the right place..
I reported the other one as well, they are using a media released photo. I just pray they take it down soon so the correct campaign can run with donors contributions going for the intended purpose. So sorry that this tragedy happened, Rebecka was such a beautiful young lady, Prayers to the family, Dorothy Illinois
Thanks for reporting the "other" GFM page. It's really sad that there are people low enough to try and cash in on a tragedy like this.
This one is legit .. I don't know about the other one.
This is the second one for her is the other one a scam?
