In a Facebook post today Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at around 2:46 p.m. a post confirmed the death of Wes Honnell who was previously involved in a vehicle collision.
Mike Pope posted to Facebook to announce the demise of Wes Hornell:
“I would like to take a moment to express a couple of things on my mind this morning.
First, I want to express my sincerest condolences to the family of Wes Hornell. He was a great man and will forever be missed. I wish I could tell Jessica Lynn Honnell it gets easier in a week, but it doesn’t. Even while going through something similar, I can’t possibly understand what your family is going through right now. And nobody else can either, although many will tell you they do.
“Second, I ask that everyone who has supported my family and me with prayers continue not only for us, but for Wes’ family, and the doctors, and nurses, and staff that worked so hard for our families.
Last, there are a couple of things I have realized since Tiffany Miller-Pope has been gone that I wanted to share. When asked about what I loved most about my wife, I realize now that the things I start listing such as her patience, kindness, gentleness, unconditional love, etc. are exactly what the Bible tells us about who Jesus is. While she was the most beautiful woman I ever met on the outside, the things I fell in love with were her reflecting Jesus to the world around her! I could not have possibly asked for a better example for my kids of what it was to be a Godly woman, and wife, and parent.
“Life is too short to reopen old wounds or to create new ones. Spend each and every moment you can helping others, serving others, and most importantly LOVING others.
It’s what Tiff and Wes did every day that I knew them and I hope each of us can continue that legacy going forward. The world would be a much better and brighter place if we do.
I love you all.”
“Glory be to God!”
Wes Honnel Accident
Wes Honnell and his family were involved in a car accident on Monday, September 13th, 2021. Since then Wes had been admitted to the hospital for intensive care because he took the brunt of the collision as a car struck their family van on the driver’s side door.
He was the only one injured in the collision, he was then rushed to the hospital after the accident.
Wes’ father-in-law, Jerry Vinsen mentioned that the doctors told them initially the situation was not good.
“We had word that basically no chance of survival,” Vinsen said.
Wes was basically given 48 hours to live. This became sad news to the children of Wes.
“Daddy may go to heaven today,” Vinsen said they told them.
Meanwhile, Wes’ father-in-law is a pastor in Russellville and he believes the power of prayer has helped in Wes’ recovery.
So, family and friends began praying with fervor to not just allow Wes to live but to recover. In a private Facebook group providing updates to members, there are over 4,600 members from all over the world.
“The doctor is super encouraged and the surgery is going to go great!” Vinsen exclaimed.
“What a mighty God we serve,” Vinsen added.
