Friends and loved ones, including Michael West (right), held a car wash Tuesday at Taco Bell to raise funds to pay for the cremation of four-tour Vietnam veteran Randy Meadows. He passed away due to liver failure. His remains are at a local funeral home but the family doesn't have the funds for the cremation and daily fees to keep the remains. Meadows was planning to marry Cynthia Li on his 67th birthday in June. Li was at the car wash Tuesday. She said he was a very giving man.
