Saturday, hundreds gathered at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp, remembering Alex and Macaila Marshall. The sister and brother were murdered at the hands of their own father just last week.
Friends who knew them said 17-year-old Alex and his 14-year-old sister will never be replaced.
“There are no words or emotions to describe the hurt,” said a woman who knew them both.
Macaila loved to sing and her brother was fascinated with Spiderman.
Friends talked about how much love and joy the duo spread to everyone who knew them. More than 100 balloons were sent into the air in Alex and Macaila’s memory.
Grief counselors have been at the school throughout the week to help grieving students.
