CENTENNIAL, Colo. -

People are celebrating Claire Davis' life in different ways.

A memorial outside Arapahoe High School has turned into something bigger to honor her life. 

Margee Herring lives in Highlands Ranch. She didn't know Davis, but that's not stopping her from paying her respects.

"I know a bunch of us at the church are praying for her family," Herring said.

Different high schools in Colorado also contributed to the memorial.

Sarah Paty goes to Grandview High School in Aurora.

She said even though her high school is almost 20 miles away from Arapahoe High School, her classmates want to show they care about Davis.

"We wrote a sign for her trying to give our support. We just want to say we love and care about her," Paty said.

Grandview High School is also honoring Davis financially.

"(Grandview High School) is donating money into the school to help her out," Paty said.

Arapahoe High School alumni also came out to the memorial.

Laura Daly graduated from Arapahoe in 1995.

She said there are other former Arapahoe students who couldn't make it to Centennial, but Daly is taking pictures to make sure Davis' memorial is seen by as many people as possible. 

"I'm going to put this up on some of our Arapahoe pages so (former students) can come and pay their respects, even if it's online," Daly said.

The Littleton Adventist Hospital said a public celebration of Davis' life will be announced on a future date.
