Donor Fund Story:
Caitlyn loved swimming and was energetic and active in mini 4-H, softball, bowling, basketball, in her church and summer reading programs. Caitlyn enjoyed reading in school and playing with her friends at school. She was very compassionate for children that had physical problems. She never liked to see someone being teased or bullied and would stand up for that child. She also loved to help raise money for people who were in need. She had a special talent that her mom could never do and that was hula hooping. She was in a contest one time against over 50 kids and came in 4th place. When she became your friend, it was a life sentence because she saw the good in all people.
Seven year old Caitlyn died unexpectedly in December 2003 of carbon monoxide poisoning. The fund was established in loving memory by Caitlyn’s mother, Cindy Whitton, in October 2004.
