A balloon release, outside Albany Monday night, served as a remembrance for one of the 20 victims of the fatal Schoharie limo crash.

Thirty-year-old Rachel Cavosie of Waterford worked as a soccer referee. The girls who played in the games that she refereed released 20 balloons in memory of her and the other victims of the crash.

"I think it's important for them to realize that soccer's more than a game. It brings people together. It builds friendships and lasting memories and Rachel, we didn't know that well personally, but she definitely left an impact on the team," said Samantha Carlo, Hoosic Valley soccer coach. 

Players say Cavosie was special, not just because of her passion and love for the game, but because she took the time to teach them the sport. She often spoke to players about fouls on the field so they learned from their mistakes.
