My thoughts and prayers will remain with the Russell, Morris, and Taylor families. I will continue to pray for God's outpouring of Love and Mercy on all of them, and that he holds them in the palm of his hand and pours many blessings and much healing and much comfort upon them. Sadly, I did not know any of them before the tragic events of July 02, 2020. Regardless, in situations like this we are reminded that we are all one in the body of Christ. We are all his children, and he expects us to love each other even as he has loved us. Having read the obituaries, I am certain they are all at home in heaven now. It is so hard to understand the Will of God when bad things happen to such good people, but then again, We can all be certain that God's plans are to prosper us and help us and never hurt us. And when tragedies like this happen, we must seek God's peace at knowing our loved ones are at home in heaven with him, never to suffer or die again. May God crown them all with eternal life, ever-lasting. And may their families know -- they will see them again - in the Glory of Heaven. While traveling East Bound on I-26 near Orangeburg SC, I witness this very tragic accident. Like many others, we all felt the need to stop and do what we could. As a trained American Red Cross Instructor, I chose to render care as I am trained to do, and as I train others to do. And it was just amazing to see the outpouring of love from total strangers in this great hour of desperate need. I honestly hope it will help the families in their recovery to know that Trained and Untrained rescuers quickly entered the accident scene to give care and assistance. I continue to be amazed at how quickly those of us with training came together to give care and were able to do so very quickly with no coordination, and those with no training came into the scene to assist as well. Truly, it had to be Almighty hand of God guiding us all to this spot at this time on this date to perform the single act of Caring for his Children. We all truly wanted a better outcome for the family. None the less, those on the scene and the paramedics who arrived very quickly - ALL made a valiant effort. We were not going to give up on them without a True and Valiant Effort. I take comfort in knowing that as they prepared to step though the Pearly Gates of Heaven and to life eternal, they could also look back and see that their fellow man was not giving up on them. God, Please Bless all those who stopped to help. Two Doctors and I performed CPR and used an AED on little Gracie Lynn. I remember her Grandmother calling her name as we gave care. And that name "Gracie Lynn Taylor" stuck with me. That led me to these obituaries. May the Peace and Love of Almighty God be with their families now and in the time to come.
