Dozens of friends and family of Collin Crane gathered for a prayer walk in remembrance of the Batavia High School senior who was killed last week in a head-on crash.
More than 70 people walked last night in solemn tribute to the young man described by his friends as loyal, loving and funny.
The group walked from East Main to the Faletti Ice Arena where Collin was an avid hockey fan and player.
“He was just always funny. I look around and I see so many memories, even standing out here," sister Jamie McClurg said. "When we were 6 and 7 we’d walk across the little barrier over there and he’d hold my hand. I know he’s my younger brother, but he’d just try to make me feel better. There’d be thunder storms and I’d run into his room. I’m older than him, but he was always the one that was always there for me.”
Daniel King led the group with this prayer.
“Dear Lord, please help everyone here. Help them get through life. Help them know that they’re not alone. Help them know that people love them. Help them know that they will see Collin again someday. Help them know that he is a beautiful angel watching over them and guiding them in the right direction.”
Collin Crane was 17.
