Friends and family of 16-year-old Marissa Bauman cannot contain their sadness.
The thought of losing her was too much to bear for many of them as they broke down sobbing during a Friday night vigil.
Dozens of people joined her sister Miranda in saying goodbye.
"She's like the only one I have left and now she's gone," her sister Miranda said. "I really don't have anyone now so I'm going to really miss her; her smile, she lightened up my day."
Miranda said she was still shocked and saddened she'll never see her sister Marissa's smile again.
"She was really a great person, everyone loved her," she added. "She was a really amazing girl, I'm not surprised people are here giving their condolences."
On Friday night, dozens of Marissa's friends and classmates gathered on the corner of Harvey and 21st Streets.
A make-shift memorial marks where Marissa's life came to an abrupt stop, when she was hit by a car on her way to school in the morning.
Her best friend found about her the accident through a text message in school.
"I just know I'll see her in heaven one day," best friend Madelyne said. "She's just a sweet person."
Madelyne added that Marissa was a goal getter.
"She went through a lot, she always stayed strong," she said. "She never gave up. She never was negative, she was always positive."
Miranda said her family will have a viewing for her sister Marissa Sunday.
It will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Palm Valley Church in Mission.
