Jody and Judith Johnson, their 16-year-old son, Nathan, and 18-year-old daughter, Katie were all injured in the blast that destroyed their home. Their 14 year old daughter Sarah died on the scene.
Hundreds filled the bleachers at Wilson High School Tuesday night to share memories and be part of a prayer vigil for Sarah.
"It's times like these when people go back to their families and thier churches in times of need,"
- Michael Wendt, Wilson School Superintendent.
