This morning started out very depressing. I was just getting settled in to my office when the mother of one of the shop hands came into my office. Please keep Marcus Sonnier's family in your prayers. He was driving home from his mother's yesterday afternoon when he lost control of his vehicle and flipped several time hitting a culvert. He was transported to the hospital and shortly thereafter was pronounced dead. Marcus, 40 years old, leaves behind 4 children. This is such a tragedy. It is believed to be an alcohol related accident. I feel so bad for his mother as she knew he had drank too much, but let him leave. I cried with her. This is absolutely devasting and she blames herself for letting him leave. I didn't know Marcus very well, but I do know that he was a very respectful, giving person.
