A communitywide celebration of life memorial service is planned for 5 to 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Seaton Family Pavilion in Forest Park for Lizzy Castorena, 7, who died on Monday.

Organizer Amber Klonowski said friends and family of Lizzy and her mother, Victoria Castorena, are putting the event together. The service is meant to celebrate the life of the Garfield School second-grader.

Anyone is welcome to come, but organizers want those who attend to wear blue, Lizzy’s favorite color, Klonowski said.

She said bubbles will be released and balloons may be available. Pastor Darren Dusher of the Berean Baptist Church will speak. Lizzy attended Berean Baptist.

“It’s just going to be a time for kids to come and kind of get that chance to say good-bye,” Klonowski said.
