BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (KMSP) -

On the same day that a judge refused to lower Jeffrey Trevino's bail, loved ones of Kira Trevino gathered to celebrate her life by surrounding themselves with some of her favorite things.

Friends, family members and co-workers came together for closure as they continue to look for answers about what happened to a woman who loved books, life and laughter.

"We've all been hurting. I, personally, need this because she was my best friend," Theresa Sylvester told FOX 9 News.

Between mementos from her trip to Costa Rica, the high heels she loved and pictures with her co-workers, the little fragments came together to form a portrait of Kira Trevino's life.

"We are trying to get some closure to everything that's happened in this tragic event," Sylvester said. "We're just here to celebrate with her family and, as friends, talk about the amazing times we had with her because she was such a bright light in all of our lives."

A darkness set in when Kira Trevino's family reported her missing after she didn't show up for work at the Mall of America three weeks ago. Police later arrested her husband after they uncovered massive amounts of blood in the home they shared in St. Paul along with evidence that Jeffrey Trevino tried to clean it up.

On Thursday, prosecutors told a judge tests confirmed the blood was Kira Trevino's during an omnibus hearing. They also say he called a relative from jail to tell them to grab a briefcase containing his passport from under his bed.

Prosecutors also told the court Jeffrey Trevino told relatives not to put their houses up as collateral to help him post bail as they argued to keep bail set at $1 million, describing him as a flight risk. The judge agreed.

Even though investigators still haven't found a body, Kira Trevino's younger sister told FOX 9 News that being with other people who loved Kira helps make the disappearance a little easier to bear.

"Every day is hard. Being with her friends and where she loved so much just really helps empty that chapter a little bit, you know? Just another page," Felicia Krejci told FOX 9 News. "It just reminds me of her and all the good times we had. I can see all the lives she touched. It helps."

While the tribute helped those who attended morn, many told FOX 9 News that living their lives the way Kira Trevino lived hers may be the best tribute of all.

"What will be will be, but Kira will always live in me," Krejci said.
