HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — One of the best ways to heal is to gather together with friends and family. Tonight, that will happen at Huntsville High School. Friends of Gunner Scarano have organized a prayer service in the school’s courtyard to lift him up in prayer and to remember the young girl, Jaden Coppens, who lost her life in Tuesday’s wreck in South Huntsville.
“We all know this is a terrible thing and life happens,” said Brandon Honeywell, a friend of Gunner Scarano. “But certainly we want him to know we’re behind him and we support him in a time like this.”
Honeywell is helping organize tonight’s prayer service for those who are dealing with the aftermath of Tuesday’s fatal wreck. Scarano’s friends are sticking by his side during this trying time. “He’s a great kid,” said Allie Hebert. “He’s an all around great kid, he’s always there for anybody who needs him, all around great kid.”
Honeywell added, “I don’t think anyone who knows him well will have anything other than positive things to say about him.” Tonight’s service is about hope and prayers not only for Scarano’s healing but also for 10-year-old Jaden Coppens who lost her life during the wreck on Tuesday at Bailey Cove Road and Weatherly Road intersection.
“It’s for all the other families that are affected,” said Honeywell. “We know that’s so hard and a lot of us have never been there and can’t pretend that we have been but we just want them to know we’re praying for them too and our thoughts and prayers are with them.”
Tonight’s prayer service starts at 8:00 p.m. at the Huntsville High School courtyard. The public is invited to attend.
