Instead of celebrating, a North Carolina family is mourning the tragic loss of their two sons, Deonta Whitaker, 17, and Anthony Whitaker, 27.
According to WSAV, the young men passed away after they were involved in a terrible car accident, where their car lost control and ran into some trees.
“I just can’t describe it. It’s unbelievable. It’s like it’s a dream that I want to wake up from,”said Deonta and Anthony’s grieving mother, Sandra Williams-McGlone.
According to Willams-McGlone, her sons left prior to everyone else and when she arrived at the ceremony, which was held at Bertie High School, and didn’t see them, she was escorted to another area of the high school, where she learned of what happened to her children.
“Did they survive this to know what happened and then they died, or do they not know what happen?” she asked.
Although, she is mourning this horrible tragedy Williams-McGlone confessed that she finds comfort in knowing that her boys were together when they passed.
“I don’t think that one child could’ve survive without the other, and trying to understand why it didn’t happen to me versus him. So that’s what strengthens me, that God knew best.”
Deonta had plans to attend Elizabeth State University in the fall. A funeral will be held for the Whitaker boys this Saturday at Bertie High School.
We send our prayers to the family members left to cope with this horrible tragedy.
