Ball High School will host a ceremony Friday for Shayla Edwards and her 3-month-old son, Braylan, who both were killed Feb. 28 after a speeding SUV slammed into their car on an Interstate 45 service road.
Edwards graduated from Ball High School in 1999. The ceremony will include a balloon release along with a prayer and a rally against drunk drivers.
Lashonda Mays, who was classmates with Edwards, said the vigil will honor her kindness, she said.
"She got along with everybody," she said. "We are going to have candles lit, because she was a humble person."
The ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m. at the parking lot of the school, 4115 Ave. O.
