The family of Allison Bayliss has finalized memorial plans.
Bayliss is the Danville teenager who took her own life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge earlier this week, according to the California Highway Patrol.
She was reported missing by her family and hundreds of people searched for her, but in the end a surveillance camera captured an images of the 15-year-old getting on the bridge and never coming off of it.
The family will hold what they are calling a celebration of life on Monday, at 2 p.m. at the Community Presbyterian Church in Danville on El Pintado Road.
The family is asking people to wear blue and to bring photos or other memorabilia that will be added to the family scrap book.
At the request of the Bayliss family, the Town of Danville released the following statement:
The Bayliss family wishes to thank the Danville community and the many volunteers and professionals from throughout the Bay Area who have given so much of themselves in the last week. The tremendous support and love shown for Alliy has been overwhelming. We are grateful beyond words for the outpouring of concern, care and community that makes this place we live so special.
