TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

An emotional memorial service was held for a Sipsey Valley High School senior who passed away a week after crashing her car.

Olivia Mills was in a car accident after church about two weeks ago. She remained in a medically induced coma until her passing Sept. 29. But while she was in the hospital, Olivia's story touched thousands of people all over the world.

They gave their love and support to her and her family on the Pray for Olivia Mills Facebook page.

 Her family and friends say Olivia loved the Lord with all her heart and that's what they felt Thursday inside Sipsey Valley High School's gym.

Hundreds gathered to celebrate her life and say goodbye. Holding back tears, Olivia's father, Tim, says he will miss his little girl with all of his heart.

"We still hurt and we still mourn...but we have been rejoicing in remembering Olivia and hearing the stories of the things she did," he said.

The Mills family posted on the Pray for Olivia Mills Facebook page that Olivia's organs were donated after her death and will help seven to eight people.
