DALLAS - Three Adamson High School students who died in a violent car crash on Friday were being remembered by friends and family Monday during a visitation for the youngest victim at Gonzalez Funeral Home.

Liliana Reynoso, 15, was a passenger in a Ford Taurus being driven by 16-year-old Miriam Ramirez. Rosario Felemon, 16, was also in the car when the Taurus spun out of control trying to negotiate a sharp turn in the 8100 block of Mayforge Drive. The students' car slammed into an oncoming sport utility vehicle.

Police said Miriam was probably going too fast when she lost control. She also did not have a license to drive.

Liliana was popular and athletic, having played on Adamson's soccer and junior varsity basketball teams.

The grief hit hard at Adamson High, where Principal Rawly Sanchez said only half the school's 1,300 students showed up for class on Monday morning. Counselors were at the school ready to help classmates who needed their help.

"I really miss Liliana; she was my buddy," said Quiana Davis, a friend of the victim. "They was like real cool people, they was like cool to hang out with.

More than a few Adamson staffers said they, too, were heartbroken after Friday's tragedy. "It hurts, because they don't understand what happens when you get behind the wheel," Sanchez said. "Kids just want to have fun and sometimes these things bring us back to reality if we don't handle our business every single moment, every single day."

Funeral services for Rosario Filemon will take place Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Santa Clara Catholic Church, 321 Calumet Avenue, in Dallas.

The funeral for Liliana Reynoso will also be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. James Parish, 1002 East Saner Avenue, in Dallas.

Services for Miriam Ramirez are set for 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Golden Gate Funeral Home Chapel in Dallas.
