Deaths and Serious Injury

April 25, 2011

Our love and prayers surround the family of Virginia Mills and Ken Shope, who both died April 6th.

Maria Rea was in an automobile accident on February 25, 2011. She had just taken Rylie Brooke to Mt. Zion and was on her way to work when she lost control of her car and was ejected 75′ away into a field. She sustained a broken shoulder, hip, pelvis, and tibia fracture. She had internal injuries to her liver, spleen, ribs, and lungs. Her t11 and t12 vertebrae were crushed and she had a severe spinal injury. She was sent to Savannah Memorial and was in ICU for 13 days. On March, 9 2011 she was moved to Sheperd Center in Atlanta. She was in ICU for 7 more days. At this time, she does not have movement in her legs, but we still believe and are praying God is not finished working on her.
