Makley/Jones Family Recovery Fund

On December 30th, 2017, six members of our family and extended family were involved in a terrible house fire. The two beautiful, baby boys (Milo and Jasper pictured above) were taken from us,  along with their great grandmother, Sandy. Three others, my great nephew Nick, his wife Rachael  and her grandfather were hospitalized with burns and smoke inhalation. Rachael and her grandfather have been treated and released.  Nick remains in the hospital with severe burns. There is so much need right now and the financial need is urgent and will be ongoing for my niece, Danielle's, family.  Funeral expenses for three people, medical bills, not to mention living expenses for those who are injured and cannot work and those who have left work behind to travel and care for them.
We already know that many of you are ready to donate and we could not be more grateful to you and to those who come to this page and open your hearts to our family in this time of great need.  Much love to you all, and thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts, for anything you can contribute.  Proceeds will be received and distributed by my sister, Gail Maynard who is Nick's grandmother.
