QUITMAN - The Quitman community gathered Friday night to remember the lost and pray for the hurting.
The vigil took place at the Spur On Church just south of Quitman.
Colton Otto considers himself fortunate that he could attend the youth prayer vigil. He says he was in the same car that 15-year old Skylar Carpenter was in during Thursday's tragic accident.
Otto says "Makes me feel bad it could have been me, but Skylar's going to be missed she always had a smile on her face."
And he also says, opportunities like this prayer gathering is just what the community needs right now.
