WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -- It has been more than two years since 21-year-old Deidre Harm went missing from a bar in Wisconsin Rapids. Her body was found months later by hunters.. but police still have not found her killer. Saturday friends and family gathered at the 2nd annual memorial ride to honor her memory.

"It's very hard. You just have a hollow feeling. I mean it gets very very hard. You still have a piece of your heart that says maybe she'll come back, but you know in your heart she's not going to, so it's hard. It's very hard," says Marjorie Harm, Deidre's Grandmother.

That pain may never go away, especially because her murder remains a mystery.

"It's tough knowing we can't put her to rest yet. that's the toughest part," says Dale Robinson, a family friend.   

That's why Deidre's friends and family are celebrating her life, her way.

"Deidre was something. She loved motorcycles. Her dad had a motorcycle ever since I've known him and he loved old cars. That's why we got them. She loved them she had an old camero herself," says Robinson.  

"It's part of what Deidre would do. She loved parties. She loved this kind of thing," says Harm.

So they got on their motorcycles, each one reving their engines, thinking of Deidre as they ride away.

"It's all about her.. that's why we hope everyone is here thinking about her and we hope maybe someone will have a clue to solving her case and that would be even more awesome,"  says Harm.

"This is for Deidre. This year and every year every year at this time. We're looking up at her and she's looking down at us," says Scott Harm, Deidre's father.  

All money raised goes to the Wisconsin chapter of the Make-a-wish foundation.

Also, if anyone has any information about the murder please call the Wisconsin Rapids Police Department at 423-4444 or Wood County Sheriff's Department at 421-8700.
