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."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Houston's Astrodome stadium, New York's old Pan Am Worldport Terminal at Kennedy Airport and Montana's one-room schoolhouses are joining a list of the nation's most endangered historic places.
On Wednesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is releasing its listing of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It includes sites from Maine to Alaska.
The Astrodome was the world's first domed, air-conditioned stadium and was once called the "eighth wonder of the world." On Wednesday, a county board recommended converting the Astrodome into a giant convention center and exhibition space.
At New York's JFK Airport, the flying-saucer-shaped Worldport Terminal helped usher in the jet age in 1960 but has been vacated by Delta Air Lines and faces demolition.
A look at these two places, plus all the others on the list, through photos:
