MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Rodney Tidwell is still in disbelief wondering how anyone could kill his friend--Jack Mac Girdner.
"He was such a good hearted man. Why this?"
Tidwell says Girdner often visited his church.
Over the last year and a half, he got to know him well.
He didn't know Girdner was taking care of the DeJerinett children.
But isn't surprised.
"Jack was a very pleasant individual. Had a heart of gold. He was constantly on the lookout for people in need."
When he heard Girdner was missing, he "thought something bad has happened to Jack...that he would not just disappear. That wasn't his personality."
Tidwell knew the children weren't in danger with Girdner.
Rebecca Myrick did too.
"He took care of the children and he may have died saving the children," she says.
As soon as Myrick found out what happened, she rushed to the Maranatha Seventh Day Adventist church for a prayer meeting and candlelight vigil.
She says it's where the DeJerinett twins and their mother attended.
"There's strength in unity and prayer," she says.
Myrick doesn't even know the twins' family.
To her, that doesn't matter.
"I have to be here. I have to show my love and support because it could have been my children."
"You hear about these things all the time but when it happens to a friend, you don't know how to process it. You don't know what to do with it," adds Tidwell.
