We have been deeply moved with the care and concern that so many have poured our way after the accident 8 days ago.
Mostly we are just thrilled and grateful that Jason is no longer in jail.
There is yet to come a legal process, which can be both long and complicated.
But in the end it, worst case scenario, it means money, not jail time, unless something absolutely strange were to happen. It may also mean the loss of our pick up truck, mostly through a Catch 22 (veinte dos!). It would be great is this does not become a reality.
Many have inquired as to Jason's frame of mind, how has he is handling it.
Needless to say, being involved in someone's death takes its toll.
But the accident was caused by a dolly disconnecting from Jason's vehicle.
That dolly was attached by the man at the rental place; Jason had nothing to do with it.
We have also discovered that this was the third accident in one month caused by a dolly from the same rental place. Fortunately the other two accidents had less dire bottom lines.
But Jason knows that the loss of life was not caused by his negligence or lack of caution.
A pastor friend in Ensenada tells us that some of his youth know the family of the victim. They have been able to minister to the family. We are praying that this family meets Christ through their tragedy.
Thank you for praying. The struggle is not yet over.

For those of you who have been praying and following what has been going on with my cousin Jason, I just got this e-mail from his dad, my uncle:
