“I’m still in shock,” Grace Life Church Pastor Chad Lamb said, WSPD reported. “It’s just heartbreaking for the community. It’s a well-known family — well respected family on both sides of their families that they come from. Our community is just grieving right now.”
Lamb said the community should gather and pray for healing after the deaths in the Milliken family who he characterized as loving, according to WPSD.
“We need to be unified in our relationship with the Lord,” Lamb said, WPSD reported. “We need to love one another. We need to help one another. And we need to understand that we never know what people are going through.”
Lamb encouraged the community to focus on their faith, according to WPSD.
