Vigil for Essence and Tyrique

A vigil service was held at the Downtown Sanger Park Square for 2-year-old Essence McCrary and her brother 5-year-old Tyrique McCrary. Their 12-year-old sister Zamiya is a student at Sixth Grade Center in Sanger. She was babysitting her siblings when her mother left to go pick up her husband from work before their home was swept off its foundation from the tornadoes last week, near Lone Oak Road, just north of Sanger.   Tyrique’s 6th birthday is June 7. 

Zamiya survived, but, is still in the hospital after surgery and in physical therapy.  She had spinal and wrist surgery. She also suffered a punctured lung and four broken ribs.  She is still healing and might be released from the hospital next week.  Three others survived.  Her two brothers Jacobi (age 5) and Geo (age 2) were released from the hospital the day after the tornado. Her cousin Baby Harper (age 2) got out of the hospital three days later.  According to a family member, Jacobi held on to Geo and Harper, standing in a pond, until help came.
