Friends and family members gathered Wednesday to remember Kayla Gomez-Orozco.

Kayla disappeared from a Bullard church on Nov. 1, and her body was found four days later. Her story captured the heart of the nation, and we at CBS19 ask that you continue to keep the family in your prayers during this difficult time.
