Red Bank Regional’s graduating class gathered in front of the Little Silver school Wednesday to hear classmates and teachers speak in memory of Riyadh’na Farrow and Albert Martin, seniors who both died suddenly last year.

The Class of 2013 planted two trees in honor of their deceased cohorts: a magnolia for Riyadh’na, and a redwood for Albert.
