Money for Beau Nichols’ funeral expenses paid in full

The funeral costs for Beau Allen Nichols, a 31-year-old Hood County resident with five children who died Oct. 11 in a motorcycle accident on Mambrino Highway, have been paid in full, thanks in big part to a donation of $2,500 from the Granbury New Car Dealers Association. Nichols’ brother-in-law, Jason Scott, who took the lead in raising money for the expenses, said that the total bill had been reduced by approximately $3,000 by Martin’s Funeral Home in order to make the goal possible. Scott said that the funeral will still be held at 1 p.m. on Friday (Oct. 19) at Holly Hills Cemetery north of Granbury, but that there will no longer be a service at the funeral home, as it was originally scheduled.
