Sneads- It was as if the entire town of Sneads packed inside the stadium. Hundreds gathered at Friday nights candle light vigil to cry together, uplift one another and pay tribute to three lives taken too soon.

Set in a place that usually divides a crowd, tonight's vigil was the great equalizer. Family, friends, teachers and community members, all united under one message: you are not alone.

At a time when no words feel right, preachers and Sneads High School faculty members reminded loved ones to grieve together, share stories and know that Teddy Jeter, Bo McClamma and Brandon Hobbs would not be forgotten.

"There's no sense in this world, no sense" said former Sneads High School Principal, Laurence Pender. "And I mean, people look for reasons, there's no reason- It just happened. And they were good boys. If I had to describe any one of them, they were good boys."

As of now, funeral arrangements for the three teens have not yet been announced.
