BUFORD -- The city of Buford is trying to ease the pain of recent tragedies.

In less than a full calendar year, the Buford community has dealt with multiple deaths, including Buford grad and Wolves football coach Ryan Daniel, who died after collapsing during a basketball game, Buford student Adam Smith who died during a basketball workout, former Wolves football player Devin Durden, who died in a motorcycle accident, and Jeremy Nelson, a seventh-grader who died after collapsing during a Gwinnett Basketball League all-star game.

To remember those who have passed, residents in the Buford community are hosting a Buford Night of Prayer 7 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Buford Community Center Amphitheater.
