Tragedy in Warren: Last Warren crash victim laid to rest

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Funeral services were held Tuesday for the last of the six young victims of the Warren Tragedy.

There was standing room only at New Freedom Baptist Church for services to celebrate the life of young Ramone J. White. The 15-year old was killed in the one-vehicle crash that claimed the lives of five other young people

Ramone was a freshman at Warren G. Harding High School who loved spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoyed music and basketball.

Warren Mayor Doug Franklin says he admires how so many have responded through such a trying time.

"People have just been giving with prayers and financial contributions, good wishes, and everything you could think of on our city and these families who lost their loved ones," Franklin says.

The pastor asked everyone to come together and hold hands as a community and extended family.

The pastor reminded everyone that our children are fragile and need to handled with care, and Councilman Bob Dean believes that is part of the healing process.

"When the pastors embraced those younger folks, I'd like to talk to some of them and see what they think that meant. I think what it meant to us who are a little older is we care about you, we're here for you and we expect things from you as well," says Dean.

As everyone tries to find peace with the loss of some many young lines, the superintendent of Warren schools says people have turned to one another to find strength.

"Through it all, I believe our student body, teachers, everyone in the communit, parents, everyone has come together as a group to support one another," superintendent Michael Notar says.

The superintendent also says he is hopeful that the tragedy may cause some new and positive communication between parents and their children.
