Today we grieve for those lost in yesterday’s horrific accident on US-63 just outside of Jonesboro. Words cannot adequately convey the sense of loss and heartbreak that is being felt in our community today.
For many years, the Jonesboro Jaycees has sponsored the Special Olympics Basketball Skills in our area. One of the athletes that we’ve come to know over that time lost his life in yesterday’s accident.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims, and also to the survivors as they try to cope with yesterday’s tragedy.
