LEE'S SUMMIT, Missouri - About 150 people gathered Saturday at the Lee’s Summit United Methodist Church to remember the life of Blair Shanahan Lane.
The 11- year old was killed when she was hit by a stray bullet on July 4. She died the next evening. Police are still investigating, but it's believed the bullet was shot by someone celebrating Independence Day.
Speakers described Blair as outgoing, silly, and helpful. Her 4th grade teacher joked that Blair wanted him in her family.
"I'd like to have you as a dad, but I already have two, you can't be my brother, because you're way too old,” said the teacher.
The lobby of church was filled with pictures and music. A violinist played throughout the service.
Blair’s family has setup a fund to help foster children get socks . She started the plan as a Girl Scout project.
