It has been an overwhelming time in Branson, MO. since the tragic event on Thursday, July 19th at 7:15 PM.  One of the Ride the Ducks sank in Table Rock Lake taking the lives of 17 people, 9 of which were all family members.  Please continue to pray for these families as they deal with & try to understand what has happened.  The entire community is in shock, but we have rallied together with memorials & incredible donations to assist the families. Peace be with you.  Always, Terry Wayne Sanders
