Shock and sorrow

This may be a little off topic for this blog but I wanted to ask you to pray for the families of Paul Eells and Billie J. Burton who were both killed in a two car accident near Russellville, Arkansas late Monday night.

Mr. Eells was the long time "Voice of the Razorbacks" heard by many, many University of Arkansas Razorback fans as he provided play-by-play for Arkansas football radio broadcasts and Arkansas basketball television broadcasts. He was also sports director for KATV Channel 7 in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Mr. Eells was more than just a sports play-by-play guy. He was an extremely nice man who I had the pleasure of meeting just a few months ago. I have heard that he was active in his church and I pray that he is at peace tonight.

Arkansas will miss you Paul and we will miss hearing you say, "TOUCHDOWN ARKANSAS, OH MY!"
