Family and friends, along with some people that barely knew her, gathered in Santa Maria on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the seventeenth birthday of Dystiny Myers, who was murdered in Santa Margarita back in 2010.
The past two years have been tough for the family, but they spent Saturday remember Dystiny.
Her mother, Aileen Myers, wonders what she would look like today and if Dystiny would like the gift she gave her.
Aileen said, "Don't take them (your children) for granted, 'cause you never know when they will walk out that door and you hear them say, 'I love you, I'll be back later.'
Don't forget to say 'I love you' when they walk out that door. You can't take it for granted 'cause in a blink of an eye it can be gone."
Five people are accused of beating and burning Dystiny a month after her fifteenth birthday.
