A candlelight vigil was held tonight in honor of two West Bountiful girls who died in a car crash Friday. Nearly 100 people gathered to remember the sisters.

There were a lot of tears, but most of all everyone was trying to be positive because that's how these sisters would have wanted it.

The family set off fireworks in honor of 19-year-old Shiloh Edwards and her 21-year-old sister Micah. Family members spoke to the crowd and shared memories. There was also a moment of silence and a prayer for Micah and Shilo.

"They both had so much charisma. There's no one word to describe them. They were just full of life," friend Ashley Young said.

Erin Dixon, also a friend of the girls, said, "Happy, Micah and Shilo were always very happy. Very talkative, fun people to be around. Very outgoing."

"I think is definitely the way Micah and Shilo would like to be remembered with all their friends and family together. They were definitely the life of the party," a third friend, April West, said.

The sisters were killed in a head-on crash in on in Sanpete County on Highway 89. They were roommates at Snow College. According to the family, they were headed home so Shiloh could get engaged.

Both girls were graduates of Bountiful High School. All their friends and family just kept saying that they were the happiest people they knew and they would have definitely appreciated the vigil that went on here tonight.
