Dustin Welch, 18, was honored today at a large funeral service at the Mission Park Funeral Home. Dozens of emergency responders paid tribute to the young man today, including crews from Jarrett, Sandy Oaks and Windcrest. Welch died Tuesday when he lost control of his all-terrain vehicle just south of Jourdanton. Welch's cousin, April Luna, describes Dustin as a true cowboy who would draw people in with his fun smile.
The young man was also an organ donor. His decision will benefit a member of the United States Army who needed and now has a heart valve. His mother describes her son as a very caring person, "He was my baby. He was a very giving person. He would do anything for anyone."

Dallas woman indicted, college financial aid scam
May 22, 2013 17:12 GMT
DALLAS (AP) -- A North Texas woman has been charged with scamming six schools by getting thousands of dollars in financial aid and not completing any online courses.
Prosecutors in Dallas on Wednesday announced 30-year-old Sussette Sheree Timmons has been indicted on six counts of financial institution fraud.
Timmons received financial aid from New Mexico State University, Western New Mexico University, Ashford University, Northern New Mexico College, Coconino Community College and Pima Community College.
Timmons enrolled for distance learning programs via the Internet and some financial aid was applied to her tuition and fees. Prosecutors say she also received some disbursement checks but never used the money for her education.
Prosecutors say Timmons, who was indicted Tuesday, has withdrawn from 13 colleges or universities since 2009.
She remains at large.
