Friends speak of her kindness and positive energy

To her family she was known as Cady, but her friends called her "Catty."

Those friends recalled Cady Reynolds' loyalty and kind personality, saying they'll miss the Marian High School sophomore's presence and smile.

On the night of her death, nearly 125 high school students from Marian, Creighton Prep, V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School and Westside High School gathered at the corner of 132nd and Center streets - the site of the car accident that killed Cady - to hold a candlelight vigil and pray for her.

Cady's death inspires family to educate young drivers

It has been six weeks since Rob and Shari Reynolds lost their oldest daughter, Cady.

While mourning their loss, the Reynolds are using her death as an opportunity to talk to other young drivers about road safety. When they speak to young people, they plan to show Cady's picture.

"Cady had such a vibrant face that I think looking at her is going to magnify our emotions about how important it is for kids to take driving seriously," Shari told the Catholic Voice.
