The 35-year-old was killed this week after her common law husband allegedly pushed her out of a moving truck.

Graves' daughter Julie La Porte was touched by the number of people who came out to remember her mom Friday.

“She thought she was alone at times,” said La Porte. “She was like, 'I have no friends,' but look, I know she's going to be looking down and seeing how many friends she had waiting for her.”

Graves’ sister Kala MacDonald was also touched by all the people who came out last night.

"Extremely overwhelmed with the support that everybody's been showing us, all the messages and encouraging words, all of this. To have such support with our family and our friends, the community, everybody's been reaching out. It's meant an awful lot."

“Anybody she met, you instantly liked her,” said MacDonald.”She was just an amazing person and kind and caring and such a strong mother for these girls and her son.

Graves leaves behind two baby girls and a teenage son and daughter.
