Ansonville, N.C. (WBTV) -- Hundreds came out Thursday for a candlelight vigil in memory of four family members killed in a horrific crash.
It seemed the entire town was there to rally around Rose Robinson, the lone survivor of the crash that claimed the life of her husband, Ryan, their daughter and two of her granddaughters Sunday morning.
A broken wrist and sprained knee didn't stop Robinson from attending the vigil.
"I'm holding up great," she said.
When asked how she's making it through, she simply replied, "God is on my side."
Robinson and the other family members were on their way to church Sunday when a minivan crossed the center line and slammed into them.
Her niece, Demetrice Elliott, wasn't surprised by the outpouring of support from the community.
"This is Ansonville," she said. "This is where we grew up. And they're coming out just like family. Everybody's family here.:
In a town that prides itself on having close ties, nearly everyone knew the Robinsons.
Especially, Ryan better known as Chuck around town.
"He was a barber," recalled Elliott. "Everybody knew him. He cut 50 percent of the heads in Anson County, maybe. He was just about to open his own barbershop."
But that will never happen now; a tough reality to face when lives are taken in an instant.
Elliott says her family is relying on their faith to get them through.
"You never know when death is gonna come, when God is gonna come for you," she said. "When He's ready for you."
Now this community is ready to be there for Rose.
"Everybody's been very strong for her," Elliott said. "She needs it right now and she's gonna continue to need the prayers."
The family has opened an account, the Ryan Robinson Foundation, at the Wadesboro Credit Union to help pay for funeral expenses.
"It's hard to bury one person, let alone four," Elliott pointed out.
Those at the vigil raised $600 dollars for the family.
The funerals for all four victims will be held Saturday in Wadesboro.
The investigation into the crash continues, but police say the driver of the minivan could face charges.
