Thats a lie! If he had of we would have known,the daughter has been trying to get the money up because he had no insurance,that is why viewing only 5 hours and creamation...that is costing about 4 grand,she cant afford a full funeral for him..she is doing the best she can with what she DONT have,But Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

as far as I know no one has made any donation to help with the costs but like "oh well" said his daughter is doing all she can and that is the reason for the creamation and 5 hours visitation 11am til 4pm thank you.

Donations can be made to the funeral home.That way it goes directly to Mr.Davenports funeral costs,Id like for his to be a little less,but it is what it is and that is what I was told it was..
I am sorry to hear about your mother in law,Prayers are with your family.

The GBI did an autopsy,Th investigation is still not over even tho posts on here appar to be other wise like the GBI said it was a ""good shoot"" come on,are you serious??? Ther are NO good shoots when a person is dead because of it,My God... and what bills are left to pay his daughter is payimg them the best way she can,he hd deductables and co-pays but she is wanting the funeral to get paid because she can not get her dad until it is,from what I have heard,she is doing everything she can to get the mony to pay it and the funeral home is still accepting donations on her ehalf to be applied to the funeral expense.. Thank You for the concern,it is VERY much appreciated....

there was a donation jar at one of the local stores & some lowlife stole it. therefore, please make donations directly to funeral home. sad all the way around. i am law enforcement & my husband & i were the only ones allowed to attend per rachel's wishes. carl saved my life one night & i will never forget that. horrible the way this community is being torn apart by this.

The ONLY jar that was out was at waffle king and yes an ex employee stole the money,a friend of mine was accused but she called the police and they had the video pulled at waffle king and found out who DID take it,she is talking to an attorney to see what can be done about false accusations and the owners wife telling EVERYONE she took the money,and pointing at her andtelling the police officer that "she is the one that took it" my friend just looked at her and told her she was a "damn liar" I will NOT go back in there and I hope they get in trouble for making false statements to the police...
AND YES POPS WAS a GREAT MAN AND A GOOD FRIEND!!!!

i was told there were "jars" placed in spots...never saw any...never heard who "allegedly stole" it, nor care...whomever did it is a "lowlife"...and i glad i wasn't told because i've NEVER wanted to be one of "EVERYONE".

Was told by a county law officer that much more info will come out later when the investigation is complete.
Also if you search the Internet you will find that this type of shooting happens very often across the US. It just not a Early thing.

Only jar put out that stayed out was waffle king,2 more were placed but did not stay out,dont know why but they did not,so as for several jars,NO just "one"
Fannin Co should pay

LE in Fannin County should offer to pay.
This is not a 'good shoot.'
Early and the other officers be damned.
They are cursed and will wish this never happened.

My sympathy to the Davenport family.
My heart bleeds for them and the community.
