Organizer Lisa Harris said there will also be a special prayer time set aside for Anasia Brazile, who was injured in the wreck and remains hospitalized at Sacred Heart in Pensacola. Her mother said Thursday that she has brain activity and is showing improvement.

The event will be held at 8 p.m. at the East Brewton gazebo.

“I’m asking any family or friends who can attend to please do so,” said Harris, who said she would also welcome donations for candles.

Robinson and Brazile were riding in the bed of a pickup truck that overturned after leaving the roadway on Travis Road Monday night.

Driver Earl Dickerson, 33, of East Brewton was charged with reckless murder, accused of driving while intoxicated. His arrest warrant states that he was speeding and that Nicholas and Anasia were unrestrained in the bed of the truck.

Nicholas’ mother, Angela Robinson, a passenger in the truck, was also charged with murder. Her arrest warrant also states she was allegedly intoxicated.

Nicholas Robinson will be laid to rest on Friday. Two years ago, he underwent treatment for a brain tumor, including several surgeries, but recovered. He was a student at W.S. Neal Middle School.
