WALNUT COVE, N.C -- Students and faculty at Southeastern Stokes Middle School made sympathy letters and posters in remembrance of 11-year-old Breanna Burrow.

The sixth grade class of Southeastern Stokes have started a jar collection to help pay for funeral arrangements and are decorating a letter-filled memory book to describe how much they'll miss Burrow.

Science Teacher Autumn Crandall said she will truly be missed.

"She always set the role and you could see God in her without having to ask and she just treated everyone like everyone would want to be treated," Crandall said.

Principal and fellow church member Rhonda Jackson said Burrow's smile was contagious and she had a genuine spirit.

Jackson said Tuesday morning the parents of Burrow attended an assembly with the sixth graders to explain the death of Burrow and two others Sunday night on U.S. 311 near Salem Chapel Road.

"I have two kids of my own and I cannot imagine what they're going through, but I know that time is a healer," Jackson said.

Thursday night, the school basketball game will honor Breanna with a candlelight vigil and pep rally T-shirt club signing.

Trooper Johnson with Highway Patrol said they are still investigating the cause of the accident.

Forsyth County School spokesman Theo Helm said that counselors will be available for when school resumes Wednesday for East Forsyth Middle School classmates of 12-year-old Kayla Carabalo, who was also killed in the crash along with her mother.
