A candlelight vigil is being held on the historic courthouse lawn in downtown Moulton for Town Creek tornado victim, 8-year-old Landen Godsey, on Friday, Feb. 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Prayer on the Square for Landen will follow a donation drive at Lume Art Studio, which is located on Market Street near Berry Delicious. Donations will be accepted on behalf of Landen and the Godsey family at the studio from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. that Friday.
Services will begin at 6 p.m. and will include performances by Landen’s 3rd-grade class and Moulton Elementary School cheerleaders. There will also be live gospel music performances throughout the ceremonies, and food trucks will line up along the square, according to the event’s Facebook page.
Services will end with a prayer for Landen and a candlelight vigil in remembrance of Landen’s parents, Chase and Keisha Godsey.
Landen was severely injured in a Dec. 16 tornado that killed his parents and destroyed his home on Blue Hollow Road near Town Creek. Landen continues to recover at Children’s of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham.
The tornado also hospitalized Marcus Johnson, who is still on the mend at Huntsville Hospital, and Wayne and Rhonda Lovett, who were sent to the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital. Rhonda Lovett was recently released and began rehab, while her husband continues a steady recovery at UAB.
