Please also read reference #8 on the article. 

This was a neighbor of mine and a childhood friend of my in-laws and other friends whose life was tragically cut short at age 21.  The family was very generous and donated the materials and trailer for a mobile skatepark for the children of East Bridgewater MA and others to enjoy and celebrate the life of Victoria Snelgrove.  I chose the trailer as the backdrop for my pictures to honor the memory of this amazing young lady.
