Four doves were released from a heart-shaped basket Saturday during a memorial service to celebrate Kaitlyn Doorhy’s life.
Following a mass service at Our Lady of Good Council Church in Mattituck, a portion of the crowd gathered around Ms. Doorhy’s grave at Sacred Heart R.C. Cemetery in Cutchogue where Kait’s Angels president William Araneo led the group in prayer.
Champagne was then served and Chris Pia made a toast as the doves were released in Ms. Doorhy’s memory.
On Aug. 22, 2014, her tragic death devastated the local community after she was struck by a car while walking near her sorority house. The 2012 Mattituck High School graduate and aspiring attorney was a junior at Sacred Heart University when she died at age 20.
