The Cordele-Crisp Community followed  a young family as they went through a devastating loss of their young daughter Preslee. Kelli Jackson the mother of Preslee updated the journey through her Facebook.  The community did not just sit around and watch is happen but came together to support this family in any way that they could. Additionally on January 5th, 2024 the community wore purple in honor of Preslee.
