Batavia, NY - Classmates are paying their respects to the family of 17 year old Collin Crane.
He died in a head-on crash over the weekend on Route 33 in the Town of Stafford.
Students asked to hold a candlelight vigil to honor Collin.
They took time together as a school community to remember him.
Students say it's difficult no longer seeing him in the halls or in class and knowing they will never see him again.
Erin Deja said, "I'd just be walking to class and he'd like smile or wave at me with a couple of my friends and then that would just make our day and then like we go to classes and we just cry because like he's gone... You never realize how much one person can make your day."
A memorial service is planned for Wednesday morning.
