The Maggie Tree

I was shocked and happy yesterday morning to open up the Sunday Waco Tribune Herald and see a picture of Maggie Weaver and a story about the memorial to her on the front page. Written with the usual verve by Razor Hero of Writing Carl Hoover, the piece opens this way:

Friends and family of Baylor Law School graduate Maggie Weaver knew they couldn’t replace her dazzling, trademark smile after her death this month from colon cancer, but they could provide something living and beautiful in her memory: a tree.

A magnolia tree, at her request, informally called the Maggie Tree.

They’re raising money to plant one in memory of the 33-year-old Austin attorney and ’07 Baylor Law grad, among other unnamed magnolias standing between the Baylor Law School and the Mayborn Museum Complex’s Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village.
Friends are raising money to plant a tree in honor of Maggie Weaver, who died this month of cancer.

I hope people will continue to give to this cause. To donate, here are the new and improved instructions:

1) Go to this link.

2) Click on "Online Giving," which is a button on the left of the screen, under the photo of the distinguished-looking lady.

3) Fill in the blanks, and make sure it is going to the "Maggie Weaver Memorial."
