The memorial was dedicated Tuesday at the Tallapoosa County Girl’s Ranch. The director of the home was the driver and sole survivor of a ranch van that was involved in a traffic pileup as remnants of a tropical storm crossed the Southeast.

Four girls who lived at the ranch were killed, along with two of director Candice Gulley’s children and two of her nephews. Two people died in a separate vehicle.
