|The Irish of JFK High School are sad today...|

La Palma, CA
The community is showing a tremendous outpouring of love and support for the family of Sydney Ramirez, the vivacious 16-year old student from John F. Kennedy High School who died from injuries of a tragic pedestrian accident early Thursday morning.
The accident took place at around 6:45 a.m. on Monday morning, while students where walking to school to arrive at 1st Period.
A memorial car wash fundraiser in memory of Sydney Ramirez of Cypress will be held this Sunday, November 7, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy High School parking lot, 8281 Walker Street, in La Palma.
Additionally, donations will be taken for the family at the La Palma Pageant on Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 5:00 p.m. The pageant will be held at the John F. Kennedy High School Performing Arts Center, 8281 Walker Street, La Palma.
I went by JFK HS this afternoon and was touched to see so many of Sydney's friends and family, community members and television trucks standing at the intersection where her life ended by holding up signs telling motorists to "be careful' and to "slow down" and "remembering Sydney!" and "Syd...we will always LOVE U!"
I also wanted to post this about news report from Eyewitness News reporter Eileen Frere here in Los Angeles.
Be safe everyone....
