Loudoun brothers, ages 9 and 10, die in Charlottesville car crash; prayer vigil planned

Two elementary school-aged brothers from Loudoun County have been identified as the deceased passengers of a car crash near Charlottesville last week.

Desmond Javon Holmes, 9, and his 10-year-old brother Quincy Jamal Holmes were students at Loudoun County's Cardinal Ridge Elementary.

The local faith community will hold a prayer vigil in honor of the two fallen children Thursday at Cardinal Ridge Elementary in Centreville at 7:30 p.m. Anyone is encouraged to attend the candlelight session at 26155 Bull Run Post Office Rd.

The boys' father and a fourth passenger were critically injured in the crash.

“It is at heartbreaking, unfathomable moments like these, that the faith community must unite in solidarity to help usher in healing and hope, by sharing prayers of comfort, peace and strength," said Pastor Michelle C. Thomas of Loudoun County's Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries. “This tragedy is a great loss to our community, but we stand united with the Holmes family and will continue to support them throughout this process.”
