On April 9, the day after Lacey Holsworth died, Danille Bott painted The Rock on Michigan State University's campus bright white and wrote MSU's Princess Lacey and Love like Lacey in big letters.

That night, players and coaches from the MSU men's basketball team joined more than 100 students at a candlelight vigil, signing The Rock and paying their last respects to the 8 year old Spartan super fan with the ever present smile.

The tribute for Lacey, who died after a long battle with cancer, lasted 12 days, longer than any other message the campus community could recall.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal!
