Our entire community is hurting especially the Otwell’s family and friends. One of Andrew’s and Calli’s BEST friends passed away today😢 Elijah you were one of my own and you are missed by so many people.
This squad of teens is so VERY strong and you will live on thru them. Please keep the Otwell family in your prayers daily🙏
- From Mike Cobb:
Asking for prayer for our dear “extended” family/friends, Butch & Melanie Otwell, who tragically lost their only son, Elijah (age 16), this morning.
He was so vibrant, athletic, full of life, grounded in Christ, and no words can accommodate the grief- except thanks be to God for the life we have been given in Christ.
- From Jay Shaw:
Words can’t describe how heart broken I am. This kid always had a smile on his face and loved some Alabama Baseball.
He brought so much joy to me every time I talked to him and could make me smile after the worst of games. Fly high Elijah! I’ll never forget you my buddy.
Prayers and much love for you guys Butch Otwell 🙏
- From April Kendrick:
If you wouldnt mind Im asking all of you to pray for a very dear family from Oak Grove. I’ve known the father for many many years.
He and his family are dealing with the most tragic loss a family could encounter. I can’t imagine their pain but as a parent I dont ever want to.
Please keep Butch Otwell and his precious wife Melanie along with their extended family and friends in your prayers. #Elijah #OGinmyprayers
May Elijah’s soul rest in perfect peace.
