Ferris students hold vigil for classmate at River Park Square

15-year-old Ferris student fell to her death from parking garage two weeks ago

SPOKANE, Wash. - A candlelight vigil at River Park Square's parking garage was held Tuesday night for the 15-year-old Ferris High School student who fell to her death from the garage two weeks ago.

Huddled together, candles in hand, a group of her friends gathered on the top floor of the garage to share their memories and their grief.

"I miss her everyday," classmate Courtney Ford said. "It feels like she is here with us, even though she is not. It makes me feel good that so many people cared about her."

Friends describe their classmate as someone who was always happy and smiling. Just like a candle, her light seemed to always shine brightly across the school's campus.

"I knew she had a lot of friends but I didn't think so many people would show up today," classmate and friend Joel Cerny said.

"She was one of the most prettiest people I have ever known and she had such a sweet smile and when she walked in the room, the whole room started smiling because her smile was that warm and contagious," Ford added. "It was hard realizing she was gone, a person that you just saw yesterday and then you don't see her anymore it's really hard." .

Evident by the vigil, this young lady seemed to have a profound affect on people.

"You would never see her walking down the hall and not talking to a friend," Cerny said.

At the vigil red roses were laid out to honor her.

Spokane Police do not think foul play was involved in the fall that killed the girl.
