A Van family has suffered a tragedy in the past 24 hours. According to Van ISD, Duncan and Missy Wyrick have lost their son Jacob.

The family has chosen to participate in organ donation so Jacob can help save someone else's life or improve their current life.

An account has been established at Texas Bank and Trust benefitting the Wyrick family to help offset the hospital and funeral expenses. All locations in Van, Tyler, Canton and Longview are accepting donations.
