CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — More than 50 people showed up to Robert Pfaff Park in Central Point to remember Alysa Bobbitt Saturday night.

Family members and friends held candles and spoke about Alysa. Alysa’s great-aunt Angela Banks says the girl’s mother is having a very hard time coping. Banks said the vigil was also to show support to her.

“This is for Alysa and for my niece Danielle. She’s really struggling and we wanted her to know how many people love her and support her and … Alysa is safe. She’s with God. It’s for Danielle,” Banks said.

A donation account for the funeral expenses is in the process of being set up. Banks said it will likely be an open account under her name at the Washington Federal Bank off of O’Hare Parkway in Medford on Monday afternoon.
