Students at an East Tennessee elementary school are remembering a fellow classmate who died with a special garden.

Monday, Linden Elementary School in Oak Ridge created a Memorial Garden for third grader Trei Vann. It includes a bench with a poem, a plaque, and a garden with native plants to our area.

Vann died in November after becoming unresponsive on the school bus.

"He was a loving, compassionate, wonderful little boy that was easy to laugh and everyone's friend," said Renee Kelley.

All of Vann's classmates helped plant the garden.
