(KSL News) Friends, family, even strangers show up in Cedar City to remember a young girl killed in a terrible car accident.

A week ago today, seven-year-old Allison Sousa was dragged to death when her coat got caught in her aunt's car.

Yesterday many of her second grade friends made valentines to remember her, and many brought pink flowers and balloons because they say that's what she would have wanted.

Kenny Sousa/ Allison's Father: "Make sure your kids do like she did to me-- huggy huggies Daddy. Every five minutes she wanted a huggy huggy. I'm going to miss that for the rest of my life."

After Allison was buried, dozens of balloons were released to show her spirt would always soar.
