(WXYZ) - Around the country and on the campus of Michigan State University, Spartans are remembering Lacey, an angel who touched the lives of millions.
Over the past two days, one by one they came to sign a message to a young princess who's life ended so tragically.
"I'm speechless to see how this has brought the community together," says student Erica Latack.
Latack was forever moved by 8-year-old Lacey Holsworth and her passion for life.
After a battle with a rare form of cancer, Lacey died at home in her parents arms on Tuesday night.
Wednesday night, basketball coach Tom Izzo joined MSU forward Adreian Payne in prayer on the school's campus.
"I would just like to thank everyone who came out and supported us and lacey on this day. You don't know how much this means to me and her family" said Payne.
On Thursday, the sun shines over tranquil silence in East Lansing. Erica Latack is feeling the loss of Michigan State's biggest basketball fan who showed us all how to fight.
"She's a fighter and inspires us all. She wouldn't let things affect her. She just went on with her day and was one of the strongest people there are," says Latack.
Students across campus also recall the close bond between little Lacey and Adreian Payne.
She referred to him as a big brother who put a smile on her face all season.
"She's brought recognition to childhood cancer and so many people want to help out now just because of her," says another student.
