    It is the second time in a month a Horn High School in Mesquite is mourning the loss of one their own.

    Senior Sigfrid Credo died in a car crash in West Texas on Monday. Four other students were injured in the crash, including Credo’s twin brother Roald Credo.

    Wednesday morning, students gathered at the flagpole to remember him.

    They were supposed to leave their prayers at the pole, but many students and teachers brought questions about the tragedy that will probably never be answered.

    "With grief  it's hard to justify what you're actually losing until you look up one day and realize, I can't call his name anymore," said Brandon Goodman, Horn High School teacher.

    Credo, his brother and three others were coming back from Texas Tech University where he was hoping to attend college after graduation.

    Texas Department of Public Safety officials said the driver of the car overcorrected and the car flipped over. Sigfrid Credo was thrown out.

    "The loss for this school is very devastating, we lost an incredible musician, an incredible person just in general,” said friend Joh’Shun Griffin.

    His friends and teachers will never forget the drum major’s beautiful voice and big personality, as they try to march on without him.

    "I think what I will miss the most about him is just having his energy around and hearing his jokes and watching him and his brother pick on each other,” said Goodman.

    Students at Horn High School recently gathered to mourn former student Shania Gray. She was murdered in an attempt to keep her from testifying against her killer in an upcoming rape trial.

    Students said their devastating losses have brought them together.
