Aaron Finley, the youth minister at the church, remembers her fondly.

"She was silent in class, but she was a great light and a great young lady and the most important thing is that she knew the Lord as her savior and that brings tremendous comfort at a time like this," Finley said. "I'm so thankful for the time that I had to know Amirah."

A 14-year-old has been charged in the deadly crash.
