BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Family and friends gathered at the Rose Garden in Delaware Park Saturday night to honor the life of 14-year-old Angel Keim.

Songs were sung, poems read and memories shared of a young teen whose life was cut short when the car she was riding in went off Versailles Plank Road in Irving, NY and into a deep ravine.

Angela was killed in the crash and a second young woman remains in the hospital as a result.

"She was just a wonderful person. She was just a regular girl, but she'll be remembered. Everyone remembers her," said Brianna Valenti, a friend of Angela and the organizer of the vigil.

Dozens of friends braved the cold to light a candle and hold it high in honor of Angela, and to say a prayer for 'Lizzie', who remains in a coma.

Many wore shirts with Angela's picture on it, and stayed through the ceremony to write a special message in her memory.

"I remember Angela as a wild, fun, crazy little girl. That's how I remember her," said Alicia Beauchamp, Angela's step-mother.

"She'll be missed a lot, and we'll keep her in our prayers...and her family," added Valenti.

The accident is still under investigation and no charges have been filed against the driver at that vehicle.
