FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

Family and friends of Brooklyn Hollins, the girl stabbed to death by Autumn Wood in 2012, gathered at McFarland Park in Florence Thursday to remember the teen.

It was a bittersweet day for those in attendance. Thursday, Hollins' killer was sentenced to 126 months in prison for her death.

Nearly two years after the 14-year-old was killed at a house party in Florence, friends said it still feels like a dream. They said it has been a long road to get justice for the girl they all loved. They vowed to continue fighting for her and to never forget.
