This took place just a few miles from us here in Rowlett, not close, but not too far either, close enough that we consider the folks in Van to be our neighbors. I want to extend my sympathy to the folks in Van, and to the families of those that lost loved ones. Texans take care of each other, we stand together in bad times and Van WILL get all of the help they need to rebuild and to go on with LIFE!
