The community of Grayling is mourning the loss of its golf coach and a member of the golf team as other players recover in the hospital.

The family of Louis "Louie" Menard says he was friendly, very smart, and loved the game of golf. His father says Louie was accepted into the University of Michigan and was planning to attend there this fall.

The family of the coach, Jason Potter, says the community's support has been amazing. They say Jason loved golf and being a coach and mentor.

Both families say they're praying for everyone injured in the crash.

There is a vigil for the victims this Thursday at six at the Grayling Country Club.
