Dozens gathered Wednesday for a celebration of life for Thomas Williams and to say their final goodbyes. 

Police say the 18-year-old was shot and killed by a 12-year-old boy after a fight in the woods near Chester Creek Trail on June 2.

The room was filled with many emotions, all celebrating Thomas: a friend, son and family member they say was taken too soon. Friends and family say he was a caring soul with a lot of love. 

His sister says he will never be forgotten. 

"Thomas is not only my little brother, he's my best friend. We have a bond that death can't break," Alofa Williams said.
