CANDLELIGHT VIGIL FOR CANEY CREEK STAR BASEBALL PLAYER

Over 500 friends and family gathered Wednesday night for a candlelight vigil to remember Caney Creek High School Senior Dustin Gerke. Gerke and his girlfriend were traveling north on FM 1484 near Cedar Lane on Saturday night when he lost control and flipped his 2002 Frontier several times. Gerke was pronounce deceased on the scene, his girlfriend transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition. Tonight, friends reminisced about the memories over the years. His friend talked about when in baseball tryouts he went out for a line drive, told everyone he had it but the ball missed the glove and hit him in the mouth knocking out a tooth. He hurt and freaked out for a few minutes and went right back out to the field. The mother of a friend told of when Dustin would come to the house and clean the snacks out. On one occasion he left a note on the front door for her apologizing for eating them all. At dusk all in attendance lit their candles and as they did the wind that had been blowing seemed to stop.
