SPOKANE, Wash. - Friends, family, classmates, and former team members are devastated by the loss of ten-year-old Gracie Snider who was killed in a car accident Saturday night on her way home from a soccer game. Gracie is described as an ambitious little girl, who was involved in sports and someone who always did well in school. Everyone who knew her says she could light up a room with her smile.

It was an emotional evening Wednesday night as hundreds of people filled Manito Park to remember Gracie with a candlelight vigil. Friends, family, teammates, coaches, and even people who never knew Gracie, but still wanted to show their support showed up. 

Everyone at the vigil also sent their best wishes and prayers to Gracie's teammate and friend, Ayla James, who was critically injured in the crash. At last update, she is fighting for her life at Harborview in Seattle. 

Anyone wanting to help or offer support can send a message to the Spokane Foxes F.C. Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/SpokaneFoxesFC

The video was posted to YouTube and quickly got over a million views in just one day.
