ASHEBORO, N.C. -- What started with one bow on one door...
"We have been busy, busy, busy making pink bows," explains Jane Staley at Sunset Flowers & Gifts.
Has blossomed into a big gesture, for someone with an even bigger heart.
"The whole town seems to be doing it," explains Bill Ivy.
22 year old Laura Lisk, of Asheboro, died in a car crash on her way back to Charlotte after spending time with family Thanksgiving weekend.
"It just hit me very hard," says Tammy Lamason. "Having a daughter that was friends with her, went to school with her."
Lamason was first to put a bow up - bright pink, Laura's favorite color.
Within days, hundreds of bows paint Asheboro pink; a tribute to Laura, but also a sign for her family.
"when something like this happens it's just so good to know that you're not alone," says Marlo Francis, a Lisk family friend. "Hopefully the message is that your community is here because they are a family that they don't just talk about community, they really live it"
If you ask anyone...
"She was such a beautiful girl inside and out," Lamason shares.
And everywhere you see a bow is a place that's been touched by Laura Lisk.
From the frozen yogurt shop to Asheboro High School, her alma mater.
"The impact I think is going to be forever, people will always remember and she's made a legacy."
A legacy that continues to grow - bow by bow.
