Candlelight vigil held for family who died in Quincy car crash

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Quincy community came together Sunday night to remember the four victims of Friday's deadly car crash.

People gathered in Clat Adams Park to mourn the loss and said the three children and their grandmother were taken too soon.

"August 14th, 2020," vigil organizer Erica Stockdale said. "Just before 5:00 p.m., a family received the news that nobody wants to hear."

It was a night to remember 6-year-old Dakota, 4-year-old Archer, 21-month-old Ransom and 54-year-old Grandma Jenny.

"Grandpa Mark and Grandma Jenny just picked up their grand babies Dakota, Archer and Ransom to take them back home to spend the weekend with them," Stockdale said. "Suddenly, everything changed in a split second."

The vigil was not only to remember those lost but also show support for the family.

"I just want to let them know my heart breaks for them," Quincy resident Courtney Sprinkle said. "If that was me, I wouldn't know what to do."

People lit candles, signed poster boards of each family member, prayed and joined together in song.

There are two GoFundMe's active right now, one for the family and the other for Mark Hendricks.

Funeral arrangements are still pending.
