Was this character's death symbolic in Bridge to Terabithia?

As a child, reading *Bridge to Terabithia*, I was horrified when >! Leslie died As an older reader now, I wonder whether her death was necessary to the development of Jessie. Was her death for a purpose, or was it just the author giving a sence of mortality to her characters?
