Vigil held for 12-year-old girl who died in Dallas gas explosion

DALLAS, TEXAS (KTRK) -- One year after her death, a vigil was held Saturday for 12-year-old Linda Rogers. Linda tragically died in a natural gas explosion while at her Dallas home.

Many wore white shirts to remember her life.

"This has lifted the family up in what would otherwise be a terrible situation," said John Barr, her family's attorney.

Linda recorded her final moments before the explosion. She was getting ready for a cheerleading competition last February when suddenly there's a spark.
