Vigil To Be Held for Aryel Amin

Former Dublin High School student will be remembered Tuesday evening at a candlelight vigil

A candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday night at 6 p.m. at Emerald Glen Park in Dublin to remember the life of Aryel Amin.

Jasmine Davidson, a Dublin High School graduate, says the vigil is being coordinated by former Dublin High School students and friends of Amin.

Davidson recommends bringing your own candles to the vigil and pictures of Amin.

She says the group will be accepting donations and allowing people to order t-shirts for $20 during the event.

All of the proceeds and donations will go the Amin’s father, brother and sister, according to Davidson.

Davidson says she was best friends with Amin.

“[I was] very shocked. She was one of my best friends,” said Davidson. “It is still hard to swallow.”

Amin, 19, was a 2011 graduate of Dublin High School. She was in a on Interstate 580 on Friday afternoon.

Amin was the editor of the school yearbook and was on the girls’ volleyball team.

A Facebook page has been established in memory of Amin. A YouTube video in her memory has also been posted.

Hello, Melissa and Emily... we've searched for the Facebook site, too, and can't find it. We know it exists because we've seen the screen shots. If someone can send a link that would be great

Apparently this vigil happened yesterday (Monday March 20.) We wanted to attend because our son is friends with Aryel's younger brother. So it seems the date in this article is incorrect. Have you received any new info/update?

It was my son who mentioned that friends of the bereaved family had said the vigil happened yesterday (Monday.)
