LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) - A group of New Hampshire residents has partnered with a church to build a temporary memorial to honor the Vermont father and daughter killed when a tent collapsed during a severe storm.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1O5Cyc9 ) a granite bench, yellow flowers, two solar angels and two doves were put up Friday on the Church of the Christ’s property that abuts the Lancaster Fairgrounds.

Resident Mellisa LaPage says the memorial is part of the “process of healing” and wants to work with town officials to create a permanent one.

It honors 41-year-old Robert Young Jr. and his daughter, 6-year-old Annabelle Young of Concord, Vermont, who died in the collapse. One hundred people were under the tent on Aug. 3 when a storm blew through the area. Fifty people were injured.
