In Memory of Misty

A memorial service was held for Misty Kinzer, the 11-year-old girl who died from the flu last Wednesday in Colorado Springs.

Misty was a 6th grader at Emerson-Edison Middle School. Her home is now decorated with cards and a poster made by her classmates.

Her mother says she always had a smile on her face and loved to hug people. "I'm dearly going to miss her. She was love of my life ... my partner. It was nice to have her for 11 years."

Misty had been in the hospital for about a week before she died.
