Community offers prayers, support
7-year-old Brian Murkison moved to hospice
David Murkison accepts prayers and support from the community after Tuesday's candlelight service for his son Brian at St. Matthew's Catholic church. Brian, 7, was critically injured in an auto accident on December 2.
It was not how anyone gathering at St. Mathews Church Tuesday night wanted to spend their holidays: in a huddled mass, grieving a young boy who remains in hospice care following a devastating vehicle accident. But more than 100 gathered anyway, candles in hand, to honor and pray for seven-year-old Brian Murkison, who remains in critical condition after a three-car wreck Dec. 2. Friends, family and neighbors circled outside the church sanctuary for a series of song and prayer in support of the injured boy and his family.
