A 15-year-old Roosevelt High School student known to her friends as "Kear Bear" has died.
Kerrigan Brandon died Wednesday at Mott's Children Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she had been hospitalized in a coma since overdosing on a cocktail of prescription drugs on Jan. 12.
Her mother, Michele Rydlicki, said the teen will always be her Valentine.
"You are the most beautiful angel in heaven," Michele wrote on a Facebook page she created for her daughter. "I'm sure being with God is better than any valentine! I love you baby girl."
More than 1,000 people have "liked" the Facebook page and have rallied behind the teen.
"May God bless your precious angel," Rhonda 'Roni' Gutierrez wrote. "May you find peace in knowing that the Lord is wrapping his loving arms around her. R.I.P sweetheart."
Kerrigan's friends have been selling wristbands and T-shirts at school all week. Money raised from the sales will be donated to the teen's family.
"It’s a very sad situation when any parent is facing a situation like this and our thoughts and prayers are with the family," school superintendent Carla Harting said.
Visitation is set for 1 to 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at Wyandotte's Nixon Funeral Home. A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. The teen's body will be cremated.
Nixon's also is collecting donations from those wishing to help offset the funeral costs for the family.
