Carlotta Williams was enjoying New Year’s Day with her children at her Franklin, Texas, home earlier this year when she received tragic news. About 30 miles away, in Bryan, her husband Brandon Baker had suffered an aneurysm while chopping wood with his friends that afternoon.
“I told his friends to get him to the hospital and I took off. I was in shock. I could not believe this was happening,” she said, recalling the drive to the facility. “I was numb, I was trying to wrap my head around everything. I was just in disbelief.”
