“Just want to say, you’ve got a big challenge ahead of you and I can’t even believe how you got through what you got through in the past,” Garth tells the brave survivor in the clip, posted to the Facebook page, Spreading and Sharing Love for Izzy Kitterman. “But you have all of my strength and all of my love,” he added. “Don’t forget, you’re not alone.”

Izzy is one of three passengers who survived a deadly car crash that killed four people on July 17.

According to Tulsa World, the collision happened when an SUV driven by Erin Van Horn rear-ended a stopped semi truck. The incident claimed the lives of Erin, 40, and passengers, Zac Van Horn, 10, Beck Kitterman, 11, and Elizabeth “Lizzie” Edwards, 13. Along with Izzy, 13-year-old Lauren Van Horn and her 7-year-old sister, Samantha Van Horn, survived.
