The Search for Skylar Brogdon

A tragedy has struck our entire community at the loss of little Skylar Brogdon. 10 year old Skylar was full of energy and life. A sweet and loving boy who adored his Aunt Chelle and Uncle Juan. He knew they loved him unconditionally. This past Saturday was supposed to be a peaceful bonding fishing trip that turned into a nightmare that we all cannot seem to wake up from. A boat crashed into Skylar and Juan's boat on Lake Talquin ejecting Skylar from the boat...he has never been seen again. Divers, law enforcement and locals from all around have been searching diligently in the waters to find him. Dive and recovery teams started Tuesday the 7th from Valdosta, Bay County, Wakulla County, and other surrounding counties to begin the search once again in hopes in finding him. 

We ask that you pray for this family and this little boy whole heartedly for his rescue and bring closure to the family. 

Juan works for himself and as we all know, when we lose someone work is your last thought. We put together this page asking for help with bills, groceries, and eventually funeral expenses. This family has been through so much trauma over the years that we as a community need to stand and lift up this family to God. Any donation helps and is more than appreciated. May God be with Skylar, Juan and Michelle, the family and with you. 

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good.  
Psalm 29:11 The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
