Line after line of students dressed in white filed in to Faith Lutheran Church in Aurora Wednesday to pay their respects to fellow classmate and, more importantly, their friend, Devin Meadows.

Even if they never got the chance to meet Meadows, a Metea Valley High School sophomore who died in a car crash Tuesday, they still came together to show their support.
"I can relate because one of my best friends passed away six years ago and it was a really hard experience. The silence in school yesterday was just really loud. It was just so eerie," said Metea Valley senior Lexi Ross. "He made a big impact on everybody."
Since the accident, students have been sharing memories about Meadows on Twitter using the hashtag #RememberDevin.
After the vigil on Wednesday, students were still sending out condolences late into the night through the social network.
"Metea students are some of the strongest people I know. it's crazy how one person can bring so many people together. #DM30#RememberDevin," one student tweeted.
