On Sept. 28th 2014 Bernell was involved in a fatal head on collison on her way home from Bryan/College Station.  She Miraculasly survived.  The other drived however did not.  None of this was Bernells fault.  The other driver drove over a mile and half the wrong way on a divided hwy.  After sustaining 18 broken bones,  A de-gloving on her right arm, Basically begin scalped, 8 pints of blood, begin revived 5 times, and 9 plus hrs of emergency surgery she woke up and began her new fight.  Sadly 4 days later she suffered a sever stroke to the right side of her brain which required emergency surgery to remove a piece of her skull.  She again proved the Miracle she is and not only survived that, but has woken up.  She now is ready and needs to go to a special Nero/Rehab to regain as much of her former self as possible.  Please consider helping us make this happen.  If you ever want or needed a Miracle to believe in she is one for sure.  Love and Blessings

Hello warriors. Bernell is still fighting hard to recover from all her current organ failures and medical crisis. She is still very sick and on ECMO! Although she is stable right now the road ahead will be years of recovery from this fight. Please continue to support her and her fund. She will desperately need these funds for specialized rehab or if at the very worst to honor her with a great sending off to be with our Great Creator. We are so blessed and loved by all of your support and help. Keep the faith warriors. Love and Blessings.

Pray for a good outcome everyone. Today is a hard one. This can go two way. Bernell will either be a 2 time Miracle or she will go home to her father and be with those who have gone before us. Although we prefer the 1st we must prepare for either. As our bills mount in either direction we continue to ask for your support and help regardless of the outcome. Thank you for everything you have and continue to do for our family. If you cannot help financially we understand and encourage you to share this with those that can help in anyway. Be it only PRAYER, that is more than enough. Love and Blessings.

Beautiful Bernell Sample was hit in a horrific head-on collision on her way back from College Station several weeks ago. She survived but head injuries and multiple other serious injuries have her fighting back in baby steps. The family has set up a fund and is asking for small donations of $10 per person this weekend. While we don't know Bernell, we know her Aunt Renee Sample and her granddad, Jim- and they are good, strong Texas stock who are quick to help others. Mark Hendricks and I donated $50 - in honor of our five children - But for the Grace of God... it could have been any of our children. Whether you have kids or friends with kids, or have driven that highway between Austin and College Station, or just woke up this gorgeous morning on the right side of the bed we ask that you join us and donate to Bernell's fund today. Thanks!
