Michigan State Holds Candlelight Vigil For Lacey Holsworth At The Rock

She first captured a player’s heart, then a team’s, then a university’s, and then an entire nation’s. Late Tuesday night eight-year-old Lacey Holsworth passed away after a two-year battle with cancer.

On Wednesday evening, Michigan State University held a candlelight vigil to celebrate young Lacey’s life. Here are some of pictures of the tribute at The Rock, courtesy of Matt Sheehan.

Sheehan estimated 500-600 people showed up to pay their respects. The power of the event was not lost on Tom Izzo.
