Hundreds Attend Kelly Hurlbert's Memorial

Hundreds from the Traverse City community and throughout Northern Michigan came to F and M park to celebrate and remember Kelly Hurlbert.

One cyclist from Manton drove up to Traverse City to ride in the memorial bike ride because he was so touched by Hurlbert's sad story.

Hurlbert's family and friend shared stories, played music, and reflected on a life lost too soon.

After the service, the group was on their way to Hannah Park to continue their day of remembrance the only way Kelly would have wanted: on their bikes.

9 & 10's Marisa McKay and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson spoke to Kelly's family and friends. They say the community support has been unexpected, but welcome in their time of need.
