Mehl Magaway was laid to rest Tuesday, July 28 at Calvary Cemetery. The total bill came up to $5371.74, Edwards Memorial Center = $2,909.06 and Calvary Cemetery = $2,462.68. I was able to raise $3,910, thanks to some generous, kind-hearted people. I’m still $1,461.74 in the negative.
Ria Magaway, Mehl’s wife and a Lakewood resident, is deeply in need and I felt driven to help her. She was left with no money and two young children but with a lot of determination to work hard in the times to come and make it through life. This is a very difficult time in her life and I’m sure there are others just like her, if not worse.
At this point, any help will surely be appreciated and if none comes, it’s okay too. Thank you once again for your time.
