Friends of young girl hold balloon release to honor her

Friends of Destiny brewer released dozens of balloons at the dance studio she attended in Prestonsburg.

The owner says after she heard about the accident that took Destiny's life, she wanted to put a memorial together and says this was the least she and her friends could do.

“At this time they don't know what they can do. To lose a child and one of their friends, it's just a way they can do something. They wanted to send her messages and do a balloon launch,” Jody Shepherd said.

150 balloons were released at the memorial.
