More than 250 friends and fellow students showed up at Gilliam Collegiate Academy in South Oak Cliff to remember a girl killed in a car crash.

Sixteen-year-old Tania Enamorado died when the car her twin brother was driving hit a wet spot and crashed into a pole.

Her brother, Mauricio, is still recovering in the hospital. Her cousin Leticia "Isis" Enamorado was also hurt in the accident.

Students lit candles and prayed for a speedy recovery but also shed tears for their departed classmate.

"Tania, if you're listening and watching from up above, just know that I love you with all of my heart," one student said, fighting back tears.

"I loved her so much," Semaje Hall said. "She was my other half, and I'm so sad she's gone. She's in a better place now."

The Enamorado family was in attendance but declined interviews.

Students at the memorial released purple and white balloons to honor Tania Enamorado.
