COLLEGE STATION - A simple gathering. To remember an Aggie gone before her time.
It was five years ago that Lindsay Walters was struck and killed while she paid for parking at the Northgate Parking garage. Saturday Afternoon, her family stood where she breathed her last breaths to remember and honor their daughter.
For Charles and Lisa Walters...the loss of their daughter has been unimaginable.
"When you live this and you come out the other side...when you walk through that grief, then you grow. You get stronger," Lisa said.
After the gathering, family and friends reminisced about the time they got to share with Lindsay...and they lifted up her memory by releasing balloons.
To the family, light has shown through this dark time in their lives. To honor the type of person Lindsay was, Charles and Lisa set up a scholarship in her name. Audrey Pederson is one of the recipients.
"I think the reason I wanted to come to this memorial service today is just because of the impact that she has had on me through her parents and learning about her life, learning about the way she lived. Of course I can strive to live the type of life that Lindsay Walters lived. I just wanted to come out here to honor her and honor that life," Pederson said.
Gone. But never forgotten.
In fact...Lisa still wears her daughter close to hear heart.
"I love you Lindsay, I'll see you in Heaven, Mom."
"Sweet pea or Beetle, those were my nicknames for her. I love you dearly and I'll see you in Heaven. Save me a place. I love you," said her father.
"We know where Lindsay is. We know where she is. We know what her walk was with the Lord." Fitting words from a father about his baby girl.
