Bailey graduated from Stevens High School in Claremont in June. Rock and Varnum were to be seniors at Stevens this fall.
At the vigil Rebecca Carrier said her sister Selena is doing a lot better. She was moved to a rehabilitation facility on Saturday, she said.
Heather Rock, Brandon Rock’s aunt, thanked the community for their support. She also told the crowd to remember the good times and Brandon’s contagious smile.
After an opening prayer, a moment of silence, and some comments, the crowd was invited up into the bandstand to sign cards for the four teens.
When Susan Langle of the Trinity Episcopal Church in Claremont asked the crowd to join her in prayer she said it wasn’t a time for closure.
