Centennial Park falls silent as community unites with heavy hearts

Posted: Updated:

The community fell silent tonight, to pray for our local youth.
 
Candlelight lit tear-drenched faces of those who gathered at Scottsbluff's Centennial Park Thursday evening for an organized moment of silence.

In the midst of the recent deaths and tragic accidents that have claimed a number of young adults lives in the past week, the moment of silence was held to pray, and remember the lives of those lost.

Heads were bowed, eyes were closed, and hands were clasped, as the community became united in a time of grief.
 
"Our hearts break together, but we all stand together as one in support of each other to lift each other up, and to keep hope," said Facebook event organizer Jodie Shaske.

A Memorial fund for Salena Cochrane has been set up at Valley Bank and U.S. Bank.
Dylan Peters and Chris Romey passed away Sunday in a tragic drowning accident. Donations can be made to the Buster Peters Memorial Fund, and for Romey, a memorial has been established to the Gering Wrestling Club.
