Dozens of people are gathered tonight at Tay Wiltsey Middle School in Ontario to remember 13-year-old Grethel Torres, who died Tuesday after being struck by a car while walking to the school.

A sign hanging on the railing at school says “RIP Grethel” with two hearts and is filled with messages from those who miss her.
