On the 30th of November we unexpectedly and tragically lost our beautiful twenty-two year old boy, Manning. He touched so many hearts and was adored by many, he was an outgoing, charismatic and caring person. He always did his best to make everyone happy especially his newly born eight week old daughter, Ryan who is such a daddies girl. Manning was not meant to leave the earth so young, it is truly a tragedy for our family and for anyone whose heart was touched by him. We are all heart broken from this devastating news.

We are reaching out to the give-a-little community in this tough time for any Koha big or small to fund Manning's celebration of life. Any remaining donations will go towards a trust fund for his baby girl's future.

From Manning's family we appreciate your support, thank you.

To relieve our parents from the stress of legal and financial documentation in this tough time, the funds will be sent to Brianna Smith to organise payment of funeral services. This way our parents are able to focus on solely grieving for Manning. Under trustee supervision and a lawyer, the remaining funds will be held in a secure trust fund for Ryan's future.
