Michael Tinsley Medical and Funeral

What started as special day of Father's day fishing ended tragically. Michael Tinsley was headed home with his twin son and daughter, 9 mo's old, and their mom Kristi. A car crossed the center line and hit them head on. The cars burst into flames.  Michael and Kristi were air lifted. The babies went by ambulance. Michael passed away at the hospital. Kristi had surgery for multiple broken bones, both hips, ribs, leg. The baby girl has a broken leg, the baby boy is  being observed. It's all a nightmare, but here's what makes it almost unbelievable...when Michael was 5 mos old his mom died in the same kind of accident and he survived.  Our family asks for your prayers and appreciates any support you may be able to give for the funeral and ongoing medical expenses.
