Hundreds gathered Thursday to say their final goodbyes to Cynthia Hoffman, the 19-year-old who was shot and killed near Thunderbird Falls earlier this month.

Hoffman's father Timothy expressed wishes for a motorcycle procession to follow the hearse carrying his daughter to her memorial service. The motorcade met at the American Legion Post 1 in Midtown Anchorage on Thursday and rode through town on the New Seward Highway to the Cremation Society of Alaska.

From there, dozens of groups followed Hoffman's hearse to the church where more than 150 close friends, family and community members met to share their memories of their daughter, sister and friend. Hoffman's sisters reflected on their memories and her younger sister sang a song to bid farewell.

Six people have been connected to the murder of Cynthia Hoffman.
