Fellow students and community members putting on a benefit for the Hotlzen’s. Hinton students spoke about how Ella and Beck will be remembered.
“Ella was, she was to herself. If she had a problem or something, she’d keep it to herself. She did everything she could to help others that were around her,” said Hinton senior Justin Kirwan.
“You had to pry everything out of her. She always kept everything inside of herself,” said Hinton senior, Emma Webb.
“She was very artistic. She was very passionate about her art and her music,” said Hinton senior Kalyn Pinkerton.
“Beck’s personality was my favorite, he always acted like he wasn’t the smartest kid but really he was very smart,” Hinton freshman Beau Derocher said.
All the money raised at the event will go to Ella and Beck Holtzen’s parents.
