Remembering Carly Ferro: Cupcakes for Carly

RUTLAND, Vt. -

On the day she would have turned 18, friends and family are paying tribute to Carly Ferro.

"She was just that bubbly personality," said Cheyenne Olson, one of Carly's friends.

Cheyenne Olson and the rest of the Rutland community continues to grieve the loss of a beloved high school student. Carly Ferro was tragically killed last September after being hit by an out of control driver. February 28th would have been her 18th birthday. Students, faculty and family remembered and celebrated Carly's life.

"She had that smile, everyone talks about her smile. We have a lot of great memories, we did a lot of things together," Olson said.

"She was amazing. She just was so into community service and it just wasn't a chore to her - it was a joy to her," said Lynn Hier, one off Carly's teacher.

The event was called Cupcakes for Carly. Volunteers made desserts in her honor. Sweets, and smiles on this night -- but the last few months have been incredibly difficult.

"We just miss her so much. It's been so hard," said Hier.

"I miss her laugh, I miss being able to hang out. I miss calling her when I had some problem - girl problem. I mean there is a lot to miss about Carly - there was a lot of good things about her," said Olson

Carly was killed as she was leaving work and getting into her father's car. Police say Alex Spanos blacked out behind the wheel after huffing chemicals. His out of control vehicle pinned Carly between the store and her dad's car. A tragedy that still hangs heavy over the community.

"It's nothing that anyone should have to go through - to lose a friend. And for such a senseless reason," said Hier.

The boxes of cupcakes will be distributed during lunch time Thursday at Rutland High School. The group made enough cupcakes for every student to have one and to celebrate a girl who will never be forgotten.
