Students release balloons for classmates killed in crash


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Students in Brunswick County took time this morning to remember two classmates killed in a car crash earlier this week.

The Waccamaw School released dozens of balloons in honor of kindergartner Gavin Williams and his brother fourth grader Kendall. The boys and their parents died in a crash with a school bus Tuesday.

Gavin's classmates and friends released blue balloons, while Kendall's released green for the boys' favorite colors. Students who rode the bus involved in the crash, which the boys usually rode to and from school, released yellow balloons.

A funeral for all four members of the family is scheduled for Tuesday at First Baptist Church in Shallotte.
