Deville rallies to support victims' families after fatal crash - Alexandria Town Talk

Monday, February 27, 2017

Friday night in a wreck, as well as other victims and their families. (Photo: Melissa Gregory/mgregory@thetowntalk.com)Cheatham and Coutee, who were dating, died at the scene. Cheatham was a Marksville High School student, while Coutee was a sophomore at Buckeye. Cheatham's family extended their condolences to Coutee's family in her obituary, nothing that he "was with her always."Coutee's obituary called the boy the life of the party and said he'd recently started his own band and loved to fish. Cheatham's obituary stated that she was artistic and loved "all living creatures," as well as cooking, skating and hanging with friends.Word of the tragedy spread quickly on Friday night through the tight-knit community in north Rapides Parish, and Sheryl Craig decided to organize the Sunday prayer event as a way to support the victims and families."We heard about it Friday night as soon as it happened, so then it was just like, the only thing we could do is pray," she said.She said she wanted people to come together and for people to see that the community was holding each other up. Trudy Strange agreed, saying she knew some of Coutee's family. Strange lives close by and arrived early for the event."All these kids need to be prayed for," she said.Members of the Cheatham, Coutee and Belgard families were present at the event, receiving hugs from people who walked up to share words of comfort. A woman arrived with a cross adorned with a black ribbon that was placed in front of the school's sign."This gathering here today shows that this community loves deep," said Pastor James White of Crossroads New Life Tabernacle, which also is on La. 1207. He asked those attending to form a circle around the families to pray over them.Two women hug before a community prayer vigil for two teens killed Friday night in a crash near Buckeye High School. (Photo: Melissa Gregory/mgregory@thetowntalk.com)He prayed that the families would know that they aren't going through their ordeals alone and that the community would continue to support them. He asked for healing for Belgard in his prayer, and then Craig asked people to join hands as she sang a song.During the song, one man with the families kneeled to hug a child in a wheelchair who also was with the families. As they embraced, other family members joined the hug and stayed there for minutes."There's times we look at life and, we don't have answers, there are no more tears, there's no more strength, but we know this as we know the Lord in prayer, there's always God," said Richie Craig, Shery...
