Skylar Carpenter laid to rest in Quitman

Sunday, February 20, 2011 - 10:23pm

QUITMAN - It was a somber scene Sunday at First Baptist Church of Quitman.

Funeral directors told us the small church filled to capacity 40 minutes before the ceremony started at 2 - that's when funeral attendees were instructed to go to another building at the back of the church.

We were told that building was also filled with hundreds of people.

Last Thursday, 6 Quitman ISD students, including Carpenter, and one teacher, Debra Holcombe, were in a suburban when officials believe Holcombe lost control of the wheel and the car rolled - killing Carpenter.

Funeral directors also told us a section of the church was reserved for Skylar's FFA classmates.
