“Destiny was one of those students that always tried to help out,” the teacher said, according to The Tribune. “She is one of those that always stayed with you.”

Brandee Crenshaw, one of Washington’s older sisters, told AL.com that her “life will change forever” following the loss of her sibling.

“I feel like my life will change forever and I’m sure everybody surrounding me feels the same way,” she expressed to the outlet. “I’ll never be the same. It’s not real.”
