Prayers and sympathy go out to Ademar and Jimmie Lou Nuessner whose Grandson Evan and his wife Sarah lost their lives in a weather related car accident Jan. 11 driving from Fayetteville to Sarah’s parents in McKinney, Texas. The couple had just married ten weeks ago in a wonderful celebration. Please pray for God’s comfort to their families; Evan’s parents Mark and Rachelle Nuessner and Sarah parents Kenneth and Marce Farr. This very tight knit family is just devastated. There will be memorial services in Fayetteville and in McKinney, Texas at a date to be determined.
