BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – A note written by a Mississippi eighth-grader whose parents were among six people killed in a plane crash in Alabama is touching people with its poignancy.
Sarah Perry’s post on social media talks about being broken-hearted after the death of her parents, Mike and Kim Perry. But it also talks about the way she is leaning on her faith and plans to care for her two siblings going forward.
The Oxford, Mississippi, newspaper published the contents of the youth’s message after verifying its contents. That column plus other stories have been shared hundreds of thousands of times on social media.
The teen’s parents were among six Oxford residents killed while flying home from a dental conference in Florida. The small plane crashed Sunday while trying to land in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
