Tragedy struck our community recent when little Elijah Walker (pictured right) fell into a frozen pond on the east side of Columbus. James Jenkins (pictured left with his son) was passing by and saw little Elijah and tried to save him. James passed away that evening but little Elijah lived for a few days after the accident. Two lives gone, two families and an endless amount of friends are now morning and preparing to lay them to rest.
