Members of Ms. Decoff’s family were joined by friends and strangers for a candlelight vigil and balloon release. As Ms. Decoff’s mother, Tracy, arrived, she was tearfully embraced her own mother. Seated at a table bearing her daughter’s picture and several candles, Tracy Decoff received a procession of hugs from those gathered.

“She was a free soul,” said her grandfather, Mike. “Anytime anyone needed help, that’s what she’d do. She would open her door to anyone without questions.”
