SAYING GOODBYE: Creston Grieves For Two Boys

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The community of Creston said goodbye on Saturday to the two brothers who died last weekend.

The two brothers drowned after they fell through the thin ice on a pond at the family farm.

Nine-year-old Nate and 10 year-old TJ Frey were laid to rest on Saturday morning.

Family and friends said the brothers were incredibly close and did everything together. This week, volunteers held a fundraiser for the family. So far, they raised nearly $60,000 for the Frey family.

All money raised from the fundraiser will go toward a memorial scholarship fund at the boys’ school, St. Malachy in Creston.

    so sad…could’a been most any kids playing.
    One time back on the farm myself and my kid brother made a raft out of the ol man’s cut fence posts.
    we pushed it out to sea (so to speak) for a test run.
    too heavy so it sank like a rock while we watched from ashore.
