Sask. community helps immigrant family return father's body to the Philippines - CBC.caTuesday, December 27, 2016
The Drake Elementary School and the Village of Drake are also taking donations from the community, which is about 140 kilometres southeast of Saskatoon.
Allan Mosewich is a funeral director in Watrous, Sask., who met the family the day of the accident.
Mosewich has been acting as their spokesperson and supporting them in the weeks of Muyco's death.
Residents moved by Muyco's story
He said everybody who heard Muyco's story had wanted to offer support.
"At this time of year people are thinking about Christmas and gathering their families all together," said Mosewich.
"And that's been impossible for Kluzy's family, even to have a proper funeral and burial, which would be customary in the Philippines to happen in the family home."
He said the Village of Drake donated the use of the community hall for the family to hold the local wake.
"They also offered a plot in the cemetery for Kluzy to be buried here but that's just not his wishes, or his family's wishes," said Mosewich.
"They would like to see him returned home. He's only been in Canada since February and they would like to have a funeral for the rest of the family back home."
So far, the GoFundMe page has raised more than $1,000 of its $10,000 goal.

‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story continues below advertisement He was torn away from his home on Saskatchewan's Peepeekisis First Nation to be educated in church-run residential schools, emerging scarred by sexual and physical abuse. For years, he would cross the street to avoid passing a Catholic church. A skilled outdoorsman who liked to fish for pike and hunt deer, beaver, bear and moose, he fell into a pattern of drinking, drug taking and fighting that kept him behind bars for most of his adult life. Pictures in an album show Mr. Daniels as an adult; a tattoo on Ms. Barber's back, below, shows him as a child. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail Moira Barber, his common-law wife for 13 years, met him when she was dealing drugs in Guelph, Ont., and needed someone to collect money for her. She asked for the hardest, meanest dude in town. But Mr. Daniels had another side, Ms. Barber says. He was a keen artist who sometimes drew tattoos for a living. He loved roughhousing with her grandchildren, rolling around with them gleefully until the long hair that stretched down his back was a tangled mess. Mr. Kell grew up in London, Ont., 90 minutes down the 401 highway from Mr. Daniels. He started using drugs when he was a teenager. Before long, he was dealing cannabis and injecting hard stuff. As he puts it now, he would keep using until he ended up in the back of a police car. Between some 20 incarcerations, he tried over and over to get clean. He suffered several overdoses, coming close to death. In Spencer Kell's dining room, angel and devil portraits drawn by Mr. Daniels hang behind him. Blair Gable Mr. Kell and Mr. Daniels forged their friendship during two stints sharing a cell at Maplehurst. On the range at "the Hurst," they won respect for their experience and toughness. Mr. Daniels had an ugly temper. He could flip on you in a second, Mr. Kell says. But he stuck up for the underdogs, especially the new guys. Mr. Kell looked up to Mr. D...
