    The husband of a beloved teacher is asking for your help after his wife was killed in a car crash.

    State troopers say Kylee Martin, a theater arts teacher at South San High School, crashed into a pickup truck Monday evening in Bandera County.

    The Martin’s two young children were in the car, but they're okay.

    But with their mother gone, the family is seeking help for 7-month old William.

    The Martin family is hanging on to the memories.

    For Kylee’s husband Roy, their 22-month old daughter Regan and their 7-month old son William it's all they have left.

    Kylee would never miss one of Roy's concerts or band performances.

    She was on her way to Bandera High School Monday evening with her kids.

    “I noticed close to the beginning of the concert she still wasn't there,” said Roy.

    State troopers say Kylee crashed into the back of a pickup that was trying to turn left on Highway 16 just outside of Bandera.

    Both kids were in their car seats and aside from a few bruises are okay.

    The crash left the Martins facing an unexpected obstacle.

    “My daughter was always great with formula,” said Roy. “But my son is very different. He is actively rejecting the formula, pushing the bottle away."

    Kylee left two bottles of milk in the freezer.

    It's all the Martins have left and they're running out.

    “It's like liquid gold for those that need it,” said Roy. “Any help in that regard would be appreciated.”

    While the family is still grieving, Roy says they're lifted up by the memories shared by friends, former students and family.

    “So there will be an unending treasure trove of memories and stories that they'll get to hear about,” said Roy. “Of course I'd much rather have their mother but this is the best substitute there can be.”
