Celebration of Life for Women Who Went Missing 25 Years Ago

Three women went missing in Springfield 25 years ago today. 

Instead of a memorial, friends and family held a celebration of life at Phelps Grove Park in Springfield. 

It started at 7:30.

People told fun stories about Sherrill Levitt, Suzie Streeter, and Stacy McCall. 

"We went camping for spring break our senior year and it was cold... lots of good memories," one friend recalled. 

After people told stories, candles were lit and four lanterns were let go for the women. 

One lantern for each and the last was for all of them. 

Stacy's mother, Janis McCall, had many stories about the group. She says this was not a memorial. 

"Thank all of you for coming out here for the celebration of the lives of three women," she said to the crowd. 

"We can't say they're gone," Stacy's father, Stuart McCall, said.

"This is my last candle light vigil. This is all I can handle...25 years," said Janis.
