Celebrating Celina Cass

Canaan, Vermont - August 8, 2011

A community gathered Monday night to remember a young life cut short.

The body of 11-year-old Celina Cass was found in the Connecticut River a week ago after a massive search.

Her death is suspicious and a criminal investigation continues. Monday night hundreds of people gathered at the Canaan School on the Vermont-New Hampshire border where Celina played basketball. They honored her memory in words, song, and poetry.

"A word of caution about using the word closure-- as in closing the book and put the book on the shelf and that's a part of your life you don't look at again. That's not the closure we're talking about here. We can't do that. It's not healthy. This becomes a part of our history of our community," said Father Craig Cheney of the North American Martyrs Parish.

Investigators are awaiting toxicology reports to try to determine how Celina died.
