At dusk on Sunday in Kalispell, candlelight illuminates the faces of a dozen high school students as they walk along 3rd Avenue West. Two girls in front lead a horse with an American flag draped over it.
They stop at a house on the corner where their classmate, Zachary Rhoads, lived. Rhoads died with his mother and stepfather in a car accident along Highway 2 near Marion two Saturdays ago. This candlelight walk is his friends’ second vigil for the family.
