Little Ryland Ward is the last Sutherland Springs shooting victim still in the hospital. But he’s recovering well and in the Christmas spirit thanks to the cards that well-wishers have sent him at the hospital.

The Ward family sent out a Christmas photo thanking everyone for the support as Ryland continues to recover from his injuries at University Hospital.
