Family and friends hold candle light vigil in memory of Isabella Tenant


Niagara Gazette — Both have since pleaded guilty to those crimes.

Freeman faces 25 years to life in prison. Niagara County Court Judge Matthew J. Murphy III has told Best he will sentence him to no more than 16 months to four years behind bars.

On Tuesday night, those who knew her best, chose to focus of the highlights of Isabella's life. Schram remembered the last time the extended family was together on July 4, 2012.

"We were watching the fireworks and Isabella was so excited," Schram recalled. "Every time a firework would go off, Isabella would yell, 'Thank you America. I love you America.'"

Schram said the one year memorial was "one of the ways that helps us remember Isabella and celebrate her memory and her excitement for life."

Streck, who went to school with Isabella's mother, told those holding the flickering candles that Isabella's memory will "always live on."

"Instead of sadness and tears, we should focus on what a spitfire (Isabella) was," Streck said. "She is with us always, so please don't cry. Smile for the wonderful five years we had with her. Angels are hard to find."
