I am saddened to report the loss of our VVA brother Agustin Garibay this Monday. He was driving in the area of Nayarit, Mexico when his car collided with a tour bus coming towards him. His wife Esperanza, his son Adrian and another young passenger survived with injuries. She has had surgery to repair an arm fracture and Adrian has had two to correct a fractured hip. Details are sketchy for me as the news article is in Spanish.

Their daughter Evelyn is traveling to Mexico to coordinate 'Augie's' return and to find out when the family can come home. We will keep you posted on details as they become available.

Prayers are in order and Bruce Millhench will coordinate PGR events for his return. We want to support the entire family during this trying time and will discuss possibilities at the meeting this Sunday.

Updated info as of 4:30 Wednesday PM.

Esperanza will  be having another surgery on her hand tomorrow or Friday. Adrian came out of one today. He is sedated and is not aware of any details. There is the possibility of the family returning from Mexico on Sunday if progress is achieved.

I'd like to take up a collection to assist the family in addition to anything the chapter may do. Sunday will be an important meeting so try to attend.
