Friends and classmates are remembering a seventh grade girl who died at school.Yesterday, they played basketball on the same court at Crosby Middle School, where 13-year-old Kailynn Boclair died last week.

The game was part of a day-long benefit to raise money for Kailynn's family. Local businesses donated supplies for a barbeque fundraiser and bake sale.

"She was really determined with what she wanted to do and playful," said Kailynn's best friend Kayla Williams. "She's a very funny girl and goofy.
