Rebecka Carnes Memorial Fund

$10,496 of $10k goal

Raised by 196 people in 11 months
Lisa Crawford   ROSEBURG, OR
My family lost one of our own yesterday in the shooting at Umpqua Community College (UCC). My vibrant young cousin, Rebecka Carnes lost her life. My heart aches for her parents, sister, grandparents, aunt and uncle. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have watched Becka grow up. She had just started a new job and college classes. This isn't how life is supposed to work and I am struggling to wrap my mind around the entire situation.

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'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.
