"As we were pulling into our driveway Wednesday evening," said Hunt, "my 8-year-old son Jaben noticed a silver balloon in the yard beside our house. Upon investigation, we discovered it was in honor of someone who had recently died."
Hunt said he had heard about the Taylor siblings' deaths, but didn't know their names or where they were from.

"Through correspondence with Wendy, I learned the irony of the final destination of the balloon since Brice attended Berea College and I am also a Berea College alum," Hunt said. "I hope the family knows that people from all around the country are praying for them."
Coincidentally, Hunt and Campbell discovered they have a mutual friend from Elizabethtown who went to school with Hunt at Berea College.
