About two-thousand people are expected in the tiny town of Marrowbone today to remember nine people killed on I-65 Friday, when a semi lost control and slammed into their van. On Monday evening, folks lined the lot of the old Carhartt building by the hundreds to pay their respects to the Esh family and Joel Gingerich. Church members from the Marrowbone Christian Brotherhood say some from their Mennonite community traveled from as far away as Pennsylvania and Montana. It was an endless flow of visitors from family members to friends, all paying their respects to nine lives lost.
If you would like to help with funeral expenses, friends and family are asking you to mail donations to: The Esh and Gingerich Funeral Expense Fund, P.O. Box 337, Burkesville, Kentucky 42717.
