Hundreds of friends and family gathered Monday to celebrate the life of Sarah Martinsen.

The 21-year-old North Dakota State University junior was struck and killed by a Jeep while jogging last week during a spring break service trip in Pensecola, Fla.


And while the grief of her death was still new, her family encouraged the crowd to remember the happiness that Martinsen always found in life.
