To my fellow community of White Oak, I am reaching out to you with a heavy heart. Around 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning our good buddy Hayden received a phone call from the Nacogdoches Police Department that his adoptive mother, Nita Nichols, had suffered from a massive heart attack that led to her being on life support and possibly brain dead. After two CT scans and an MRI, it had been determined that Nita was brain dead. Hayden, at the young age of 23, was then left with the decision to either keep Nita alive on life support, or take her off and pray to God for a miracle. After much consideration, thoughts, and prayers with close family and friends, Hayden made the decision to take her off of life support. He laid by her side in the hospital until the good Lord decided it was time for Nita to come home. This was a very tragic and unexpected death. With Nita being financially unstable and Hayden being a college student who is on the verge of graduating this coming May, there unfortunately are not enough resources to cover funeral home expenses. There will not be a funeral, however, he needs as much help as he can get funding the cost of all end of life expenses involved. During this time of tragedy, Hayden has been left with a burdened and broken heart. He has had to take time away from school, time away from work, and has had to make tough, life-changing decisions that no 23 year old should have to make in his young adult career. Those of you that truly know Hayden, know how loved he is, and know how truly remarkable of a young man he is and everything that he stands for. So, to my fellow community of White Oak and surrounding area, I am asking for your help. Please help me in lifting our friend Hayden up spiritually, emotionally, and financially. Thank you, God Bless!
