Seven year old Landon Taylor died in a car accident Tuesday night on Butcher Bend Road. His father, Zachary, and five year old brother, Lance, were also in the car but survived.

Hundreds filled the gymnasium at Wirt County High School Sunday to show their support to Landon's family.

Family members, friends, teachers, and coaches shared their favorite stories of Landon, keeping in mind that they were there to celebrate the life that touched so many in such a short time.

"As you can see by the numbers here there's a huge community spirit within this area. It speaks volumes about the family and Landon and the lives that he's touched", says Landon's great uncle, Jim Lewis.

Landon's brother Lance, is recovering from a broken leg but was honored with a bravery award. Family members say Lance was a hero the night of the accident.
