It is the type of moment that does not require words. A moment where sometimes a hug or tears say it best. A community, a team, coming together.
"We contemplated whether to wait or not, and it was a hard decision but when your emotions are raw, you don't know where to turn," said Julie Matzke.
Matzke organized tonight's event. Her heart tugged to bring people together. And others hearts, tugged back.
"This is a tragedy for any family that has kids or doesn't have kids feels compelled to be here and support the family," said Christina Marshall. She came out to tonight's event not knowing the Schaffhausen girls.
There are those who did not know Amara, Sophie or Cecilia. And then, there are those who know them best.
"This is just a soccer ball that our whole team decided to sign and it says, we love you, we miss you, you're a great soccer player," said Allie Linehan. She played soccer with Amara.
For anyone, it is heartbreaking. Even more so when you are 11-years-old and your friend, your teammate is not coming back.
"We were at soccer practice and all the parents were in the parking lot, and we knew something was up, and when we were done with practice the moms told us," Linehan said.
And so tonight a community comes together, cries together and remembers the lives of three girls together.
"We miss you Amara, Sophia and Cia. Until we meet again, we love you," Matzke added.
