I am so sorry for your loss but I still continue to have hope. How do you know she didn't get in a car and that's why you didn't see her come off the bridge. I'm still hoping and praying for a miracle. A Danville Resident

A girl I feel honored to have know. A special person. She had a lot to offer this world. A real tragedy.
