On the evening of September 25, 2014, Floyd and Tempa White were enjoying a motorcycle trip with a group of friends just as they had done many times before. The group was returning to their hotel and traveling in safe, tandem rows as always. As they neared a curve in the road, a lone cyclist in oncoming traffic crossed lanes and struck Floyd and Tempa. Floyd died within seconds of the impact. Tempa was flown to the trauma center in Fayetteville, Arkansas where she was diagnosed with multiple facial fractures, bleeding the brain area and spine. The bleeding is under control at this time; however, she will undergo surgery on Saturday, September 27th to address the facial fractures.
Tom and Tempa were working, productive parents and grandparents. Their schedules were full and they occasionally stole time away to enjoy a motorcycle trip as an economic way of seeing the world! As with most of us this day and age; very little was stretched to go a very long way.
Tempa and her family need your prayers and help to make it through the days to come. Insurance from the other party may take quite some time to fund and could leave a large remaining debt for a family left with no main breadwinner.
