School shooting victim Helena Ramsay to be laid to rest

Ramsay Family (PARKLAND, Fla.) — Seventeen-year-old Helena Ramsay, one of the 17 people gunned down in the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at a Florida high school, will be laid to rest on Friday.

Ramsay was a “smart, kind-hearted and thoughtful person” who would have started college next year, relative Curtis Page Jr. wrote on Facebook.

“She was deeply loved and loved others even more so,” he wrote, adding, “She was so brilliant and witty, and I’m still wrestling with the idea that she is actually gone.”

According to The Orlando Sentinel, a cousin, Jamie Page, wrote online that Helena was “a genuine, beautiful and smart human being who had so much potential and the brightest future.”

The newspaper said cousin Fena Cooper posted on Facebook, “Valentine’s Day will never look the same for my family.”
