Students in Liz Grigas’ second-grade class at Fierke Education Center wore purple and cowboy or cowgirl boots, in memory of their friend Bailee Zaker on what would have been her eighth birthday. 

The blue-eyed, blonde-haired, bubbly Oak Forest 7-year-old died in October. She loved her cowgirl boots.

“She is still a part of our classroom family and we wanted to do something special for her birthday to remember her,” Grigas said.
