Prayers for Virgil Trucks

I had some big plans for my vacation.  I was going to catch a Montgomery Biscuits game and then I was going to try really hard to meet Virgil Trucks in person.  I called his house this morning to see if he would be available to meet up next week and was sad to hear that he is in the hospital after suffering a nasty fall at home.
Mr. Trucks broke his leg and hit his head in the fall.  I believe it was his wife that I spoke with, and she said that he wasn't doing well at all.  At 95 years old, any fall can be devastating.  The lady I spoke with said that if things go well, then he should be moved to a rehabilitation center by early next week.  If he is well enough to receive visitors, she will allow me to visit (since I have already planned on being in the area).  I even offered to give her a ride to the hospital if needed, but she has folks who are handling that for her.

I ask that everyone keep Mr. Trucks in your thoughts and prayers.  At 95 years old, he has lived a long and full life, but he has been a treasure to everyone that has come into contact with him.  I am very upset with this news.
