A vigil was held for four women in an SUV and a 20-year-old man on a motorcycle who collied and died in a fiery crash.

Estero’s Copperleaf Community held the vigil Sunday, where the media was asked not to attend out of respect for the families.

Ocean Church also held a service where the pastor offered prayer and support for the Malachi and Parker families.

A cross stands at the corner of the intersection where the crash happened, decorated with hand-written notes, flowers, photos and trinkets to honor the remembrance of Malachi.

He was a youth leader at Ocean Church and was on his way home when the crash occurred.

During Sunday’s service, the church dedicated a portion of their sermon to him.
