"I look to my friends... Fire claims the life of a two year old child"
THE UNDERTAKER: Good day... I hope that many would read this first and then make a choice after reading, so if you will, please bare with me and let me just get this message across... This is not the regular message that I probably would send people, but as a promise to a friend I work with (B.C. Hydro, in Surrey, BC ) earlier today, I said I would do what I could to help...
THE UNDERTAKER: I understand that many of you that will get this message do not know many of the people that are apart of this group message, but I don't plan on making this a regular habit and this is the easiest way to do this... I am sorry if this is not what you wish from me...
I was told by a friend that he knew of the people in this story about a family that lost everything in a fire that claimed the life of their two year old child... My goal is to take a long shot and see if there is any chance anyone wishes to make a donation, I am more than willing to provide a mailing address and my home and work e-mail links... What I am more likely counting on is that people that wish to pass on any messages to the family that suffered such a loss, please message me here or to my e-mail that I will provide at the end of this message...
I am taking a long shot here, but I am hoping that I will come across some results, and either way... I thank you for your time to read this message... I know that family can never recover from what has happened, but any chance of helping them up on their feet a little, that's not a bad start... The following is a link from GLOBAL news to verify my message...
message me for this information, thank you
message me for this information as well, thank you
eh... better message me for this information also, thank you
I'll gladly provide a mailing address and any other information I may have over looked, as needed or requested... You see me here as The Undertaker or The Red Man Walking, but I come to you as Mike Eagle and hope that I can help those in need... Again, Thank you for your time...

THE UNDERTAKER: A two-year-old boy has died after he was pulled from his burning home in Langley Township this morning.
Crews responded to the fire, in the 8200-block of 272 Street, and started first aid on the child.
The boy was taken to hospital by BC Ambulance, but sadly did not survive.
Everyone else who lives at the home is accounted for. It is believed there were three children and the mother home at the time the fire broke out.
The mother was able to get the first two children out, but was not able to get the young boy out.
The father tried to get into the home a few times to rescue his son, but was unable to do so.
Family friend and relative Tim Killey gave a brief statement to the media about the little boy’s death. He also tried to get into the home to reach the boy, but he was unable to. “Probably the most tragic event any family can endure,” he says. He says they still have to notify the extended family and they want their time to grieve their loss.
“I’m broken up, I stood here and watched and there was nothing I could do,” says Killey.
Township of Langley fire department assistant chief Bruce Ferguson says they first received a call at about 8:30 a.m. When they arrived they found the house fully involved.
“We originally went to multiple alarms, knowing we were out of the hydrant catchment area in the Township of Langley here,” says Ferguson. “We arrived on scene, we’ve got all of our available tankers from the Township here, we’ve got approximately 30 firefighters on scene.”
He says fighting a fire in this rural area can be more difficult as there is no water readily available and it can take longer to get set up, but they did have enough water to fight the blaze.
“Fatalities, especially child fatalities are very difficult on our crews,” says Ferguson. He has been a firefighter with the Township for 32 years and says this is only his second child fatality due to fire.
Ferguson says it looks like the home is a total loss. The cause of the fire is still to be determined.
There were no sprinklers inside the home.
NOTE: A trust fund account has been set up for the family at Westminster Savings Credit Union under Langley House Fire Trust – Account # ***************
A second trust fund account has been set up for the family at Coast Capital Savings (in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island)
The Evangelical Free Church at 8870 Glover Road in Fort Langley is accepting donations for household items on behalf of the family (Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
missdaisy91: Good for you. I am so proud to be part of this and yet, still believe there are still good people out there. yes, it may be a difficult time for all of us, but any amount small or big will definitely make a difference. slowly we can achieve one bigger goal. Count me in . Till then my prayers are with the family !
THE UNDERTAKER: I'll be glad to pass on anything that anyone wishes to send... Words, donations, and so on are more than welcome...
THE UNDERTAKER: I was told by the guy at work that if people could spare a couple bucks here or there, that would be good... I won $28.00 on Sunday from winning a pool on the W.W.E. Royal Rumble... Entrant # 28 won the match and I am saving it and passing it on...
I am also in contact with two local wrestling promotions that may be able to help out with the 50/50 draw they have each show and I guess we'll see what the answer is soon enough... I think this is not a bad start...
THE UNDERTAKER: Thank you to everyone so far... I imagine there's a limit to replies, so unless I am answering a question, I'll step aside and let my friends say what you wish to... Thank you for your time and understanding...
THE UNDERTAKER: No worries... I can message or private message people the information upon the request of my friends... I like that I can edit on this page and not have to re-do everything I wrote... After all... there was a lot to say... It takes me an hour just to tell someone I'll be right there... LOL
THE UNDERTAKER: I can gladly work around the no e-mails on here... My main goal is to help my friend at work with the family he knows that lost their child... I hope anyone that sees this here would kindly say words of hope, prayers or anything else to offer condolences... I could tell when he told the crew at work yesterday that it was not an easy subject...
THE UNDERTAKER: For those of you on Face Book, the page is set up there too...
THE UNDERTAKER: well, thanks... but I see what happens when I try too hard for others... Call it selfish if you want, but it's a statement of fact that it never really does work...
