A vigil was held for 8-year-old Gidieon Cook of Warsaw on Thursday night.

He was on his way home from summer school at Harrison Elementary School when he was struck and killed by a car while in the crosswalk on Husky Trail on Monday afternoon.
The vigil was held in that location, at Husky Trail and North Pointe, at 7:30 p.m.
WNDU reports Gidieon’s family remembers him as someone who was always happy, exciting and lighting up the room. 
A balloon release was held in his honor.  Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday.
