Western...

I'm sad to report that Western passed away this morning after a long 15 hour surgery. Between massive infection, loss of blood and the extent of his injuries, it was just too much for his body to handle. Nicole's ward in Houston is currently packing up her house and loading it all on a truck and sending it on to Missouri. Her and the baby will be staying at her parents house. (Mark's oldest brother and his wife) Please continue to pray for them. Nicole will need strength to get through this difficult time.
