Michaela Smith was remembered at the Mansfield Board of Selectmen’s meeting Tuesday with a moment of silence. Smith, a 16-year-old Mansfield High student, was killed in a car crash Saturday in Foxborough.
Selectmen chairman Jess Aptowitz said he spent time with the Smith family this week and offered the town’s support.
“We are here for you, a month from now, a year now, how long it takes,” he said.
Aptowitz also talked about the vigil held at the high school Tuesday night.
“Michaela was a big part of this community,” he said. “Michaela will be solely missed.”
Her wake will be today from 4-8 p.m. at the Sherman & Jackson Funeral Home, 55 North Main St., Mansfield, while a Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary's Church, 330 Pratt St., Friday, April 13, at 10 a.m.
