Words written by Siles Langston, friend of Deena Weeks, Ryder's grandmother. Prayer warriors! The McDonald family needs your love, support and prayers right now. Ryder was involved in an accident Sunday, September 25th crossing 1585 and Avenue P on his dirt bike when he was hit by a flatbed truck towing a trailer. Ryder was a sophomore at Lubbock Cooper High School. It is without a doubt that he loved Jesus, his family, his friends, horses and dirt bikes. He entered the gates of heaven this morning, September 27th. Please support and pray for this family. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.
My daughter, Hannah, is a friend of Lyndee's, one of Ryder's sisters. The funds received will be given directly to Lacy Ferrell, Ryder's mother. Thank you all for supporting this family.
