Pascagoula Teenagers Mourn Friend Killed In Car Accident

"We were talking last night about senior year homecoming" one of the Miller's friends says as she starts to cry.

But all of the memories, both good and bad, bring tears to their eyes.

Most of the people in this room went to Pascagoula High with Lindsay Miller.

Though they now live hundreds of miles apart, news of her death, has brought them all together.

"We all went to college and went our separate ways, but no matter what, we still grew up together and we're still like a big family. It hurts every single one of us just as bad," Zach Schnoor says.

"We go to Ole Miss and there's been a lot going on up there, a lot of deaths, and we were saying we've been so lucky because we haven't lost anybody. Kind of weird, it happened three days later," friend Kourtni Trehern says.

All of her friends say it happened to one of the nicest and most thoughtful people they've ever known.

"She's beautiful inside and out. She's the most beautiful person," Stan Smith says as he cries.

"She had this wonderful engaging personality. She'd just brighten up your day if you saw her in the hall or if she came in your class or if you saw her working at the bakery downtown where she used to work," friend Danny Smith says.

"It seems like the bad things always happen to the good people. It's unfair but I know she's going to a better place. That makes me happy to know she's in a better place," Kevin O'Sullivan adds.

"I don't think it's something you get over. I think you just work through it," Lane Futch says.

"As hard as it is for her to be gone. She's one of the only people I can honestly say there's no doubt in my mind, she's in heaven right now, " Laura Willis says.

Knowing that, they say, helps ease the pain.
