Hundreds attend memorial for Chico State student killed by falling tree limb
Hundreds of people attended a memorial service in Chico Monday to say goodbye to a young woman struck and killed by a tree limb last week.
Pa Houa Lor died when an oak tree branch struck and killed her a week ago Tuesday on the Chico State campus. She was a month shy of her 19th birthday.
"She was so young, she had so many dreams ahead of her....she cannot accomplish," said her sister-in-law, Suping Vang.
The packed service was held at Bidwell Chapel.
Extended family flew in from all over the country, including Minneapolis and North Carolina, to be a part of her memorial.
Also on hand were dozens of friends and members of the Chico State community.
All remembered a young woman who touched so many people and now leaves behind so many memories.
"Right now all I have left is the videos, pictures...that's pretty much it," Vang says. "It's so hard for me to accept the fact that she's no longer coming back."
