Tragedy in Warren: Warren community wraps support around families of crash victims

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - As the families of the victims cope with the loss of six young lives, Warren city leaders are helping the rest of the community wrap its support around them.

Warren City Councilman Bob Dean says he's helping with the planning process for possible services at Sterling-McCullough Williams Funeral Home. Pineview Memorial Park Chapel cemetery is donating six plots, providing final resting places for the victims.

On Monday, Friends Baptist Church donated $500 to the Gifts for our Children Fund at Huntington Bank. All proceeds will go to help pay for funeral costs.

Dean says he believes the community will help lift the burden on the shoulders of the families in finding a way to pay for a proper farewell.

Support and love is what 14-year-old Brandon Murray's mother says she needs most right now.

"This is just going to be a rough road and I hope everyone just says a couple prayers for us and keep me in your hearts," Lisa Williamson said.

Murray left behind four brothers.

"A lot of families need help at this time and you don't think that you could be burying your child at 14," Williamson said.

Donations to the Gifts for Our Children fund are welcome at any Huntington Bank location and on the bank's web site.

Dean says leaders of other churches plan to donate to the fund this week.
