Family and friends are preparing to pay their final respects to a Wichita Falls child whose short life ended last week on playground.

Five year old Rebekah Catano died Thursday on the playground at Highpoint Village Apartments.

Police say after playing at the playground Rebekah was found hanging from a jump rope on the monkey bars.

It's a place friends and family say she loved and visited almost daily.

It's also a place where loved ones gathered Friday night for a prayer vigil.

Earlier tonight a rosary took place at Owens and Bumley Funeral Home and Monday at 10 a.m., family and friends will gather for Rebekah's funeral liturgy.

It will take place at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, which is located at 421 Marconi Street in Wichita Falls.
