Aavah's Angels continue efforts to help Mangus family BY PATrl CARPENTER A group of thoughtful fifth-graders--Alyssa Rael, Sam Cornia and Hailey Rael--from Lovell Elementary School have been busy for several months coming up with ways to raise funds to help classmate Dallen Mangus' little sister Aavah, who suffers from complications of a rare disease called heterotaxy. The students have already raised $600 by placing a donation jar in the lobby of the school. That jar will re- main in the lobby of the school through February. With the help of the student council, the students also plan to station themselves in the Lovell High School gymnasium on Jan. 23 when the LHS basketball teams host the boys and girls teams from Powell High School. The group plans to sell heart suckers during the event. They also plan to raffle off a "Hometown Glory" print and to hold a silent auction for a basket filled with goodies like games, popcorn and other items that were donated by school staffmembers. The students have set a goal to raise $3,000 for the family. Aavah was diagnosed with the disease prior to her birth and has endured many complications of the disease. Heterotaxy causes certain organs in the infant's body to form on the opposite side of the body from where they would normally form. For example, the heart forms on the right side instead of on the left side of the body. It is also known to affect the development of the heart and other major organs like the liver, lungs, intestines and spleen. As is common with many babies, Aavah required a heart transplant, which she received at only three months old. Most recently, little Aavah developed a rare blood dis- ease called warm and cold agglutinin and once again, she seems to be beating the odds of succumbing to the disease with the help of the medical staff at Children's" Primary Hospital in Utah. The disease affects Aavah's red blood cells, which are continually breaking down, causing her hemaocrit and he- moglobin to drop to unsafe levels. Already the disease has required Aavah to receive numerous blood transfusions. In spite of Aavah's continued medical problems, the family remains optimistic. Aavah has a Facebook page called Prayers for Aavah Jude and a large following of supporters. Several fundrais- ers have been held to help the family, including several co- ordinated by this same group of good-hearted children. Classmate Dallen Mangus is also helping with the fundraiser to help his baby sister. For more information, contact Gwen Walker at 548-2247. ' IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES!

Charlie was born Feb. 1, 1950, in Lovell to Gerald W. and Beulah Asay Brown. He was the seventh of eight siblings. After the tragic loss of his parents and oldest sister Nadine, he grew up in the home of his Aunt Ellen and Un- cle Harry Cook through his high school years. Charlie graduated from Lovell High School in 1969. He joined the U.S. Navy but was soon honor- ably discharged because of impaired hearing. He then headed to South Caroli- na to see his brother Ger- ry for the summer. After re- turning to Lovell he started working at the Great West- ern Sugar factory. After that, he went on to work at Nicholls and Lewis, ending his work career with Lovell Redi-Mix in 2008. Charlie was always a hard worker. He always put 100 percent into every job. Charlie was working in Worland when he met and married Yvonne Holdren on July 17, 1970. To this union was born Tamara Ann. Charlie and Yvonne lat- er divorced. Five years lat- er he met Dora Mae Awalt. They married in 1982. With that union came two children, Rebekah Jo and Travis Lynn, whom he later adopted. In the year 1983 their fourth child was born, Tonya Marie. The family was sealed for time and all eternity at the Idaho Falls Temple. Their love for children went further than their own. Charlie and Dora opened their home to foster chil- dren and children in need. Danny Frederick was one foster child who came into their home and was wel- comed with open arms. He became part of their family. Charlie lost the love of his life, Dora, in a tragic car ac- cident in 1986. He went on to raise all the children on - Jan. 9, 2015 his own. Charlie's interests in- cluded anything outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, camping and going in to Moss Ranch. He would al- ways have a joke to tell to anyone who needed a laugh. His favorite hobby was pho- tography. He took photos of everyone. Where there was beautiful scenery, he made sure to capture it: He even took pictures of work sites. He was a man of many nicknames. His family knew him as Dad and Papa Charlie. Friends called him Fat Cat, Certified and Otis. Charlie was gracious and humble. He will be greatly missed. He was preceded in death by his parents Ger- ald and Buelah Brown, his brother, Ray Brown, sisters Nadine Brown and Bever- ly Sanford and his beloved wife, Dora. He is survived by his children Tammy (Travis) Adey of Lovell, Travis (Kathy) Brown of Billings, Rebekah McCuen of Billings, Tonya (Chris) Fink of Missoula and Dan- ny (Ronda) Frederick of Worland; 17 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and siblings Linda, Doro- thy, Carol and Gerry. Visitation and services were held on Wednesday, Jan. 14, and he was laid to rest in the Byron Cemetery. Memorial donations can be made in Charles' name at the Bank of Lovell. i iii{iiiii!iiii!!iiiiiiiiiiiiieiiiiieliiiirniiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiilli!ii!ii!i delivered every week!
