A community gathered at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe Church to remember three young people who killed in a car crash in El Paso.

Three cousins, Jassmine Alferez, 18; Brenda Morales, 12; and DeMarco Morales, 11; were visiting their grandfather, Humberto Alferez, 63. They and another person were killed when a pickup truck ran a stop sign and plowed into their car on Sunday.

"It's just overwhelming," said their uncle, Kenneth Alferez. "It's just too many at once; I don't which one to feel bad about. I feel bad about my father for a minute, but then I think about Jassmine, and then I think about B and DeMarco, and then it starts over."

Family and friends said prayers and paid tribute to the three cousins. Loved ones said the inseparable cousins are together in a better place.

"It's like they left us messages everywhere," Alferez said. "It's just beautiful, it's just how they were. They were never upset for very long; they always laughed."

Jassmine Alferez graduated from Lakeview Centennial High School in May. Her cousins, DeMarco and Brenda Morales, went to school in the Garland Independent School District.

The El Paso Sheriff's Office said Alberto Coronado, 23, faces five counts of intoxication manslaughter. The crash is still under investigation while investigators wait for toxicology results. His bond is set at $1.8 million.
