Van Alstyne Teen Remembered by Classmates, Parents

Posted:

VAN ALSTYNE, TX--The spirit of a girl who passed away earlier this week is in the Van Alstyne stadium tonight. 

The loss of Madison Williams has united students and parents who knew her. 

During the Van Alstyne football game, parents and friends of Madison will be selling snow cones and wrist bands to pay for funeral expenses and to help families who have loved ones in an intensive care unit.

Though the panthers' colors are blue and white, band members will wear black shirts with pink writing that say "Peace Love and Madison."      

"I'm just humbled from the turn out and the people who've reached out because God uses people that way--to do his miracles--and he's been doing that all week," Griff Servati said, Madison's youth minister.

"It's going to make me feel great because Madison--her spirit is going to live on with this and it's something we want to be able to help families out," Tommy Williams said, Madison's father. "Her spirit will live on forever. That's just the way she was."

More than a week ago while Madison was traveling with her church group, the vehicle flipped over the road in Denison. She later passed from injuries while in the hospital.

There will be a dance to honor Madison at the Van Alstyne community center open to the public Saturday from 2 till 4 that afternoon.
