COTTONDALE, AL (WBRC) -

Friends of the man hit and killed by an Amtrack train in Cottondale gathered on Tuesday to remember him.

He was identified as 21-year-old Cecil Ross Neville. Shortly after Neville was killed, a makeshift memorial was put up near the tracks. It appears that memorial is a little weathered.

So on Tuesday, some of his friends put up another longer lasting memorial to keep his memory alive.

"He was really sweet and did a lot for others. We want to show our appreciate and respect," Neville's friend Kayla Kittle said.

"Life is short and we want to show Cecil that he is never going to be forgotten," Neville's friend Gabrielle Vanmatre added.

Neville was the brother of Heaven LaShae Ross, the Northport girl who went missing in 2003. Her body was found three years later in an abandoned home in Holt. That murder case remains unsolved.
