Mattie’s Memorial Fund: Thanks and Update

Many of you have asked how to help now and what our current needs are, so I’m sharing here.

We have been so blessed by the outpouring of gifts to Mattie’s Memorial Fund, meals, cards, gifts and words of love and support. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We were able to pay for all of the initial costs of Mattie’s service and burial, and we are now left with the final cost of his gravestone. We have received a $1000 grant but are still short $3000.


This is the photo that will be on his stone. 

For anyone wishing to give further to this expense, here are some ways that you can give.

The GoFundMe account is still active and able to receive funds. CLICK HERE

If you would prefer a tax-deductible donation, checks written out to Tekoa 211 and mailed to our home: 12312 Askew Street Grandview MO 64030
