Hundreds of people said final goodbyes Monday afternoon to two Murray County High School teenagers and a 57-year-old man killed in a car crash.
We continue to learn more about the five people involved in last week's crash - four of them died at the scene.
NewsChannel 9 has learned that the only survivor, 18-year-old Alexis Pinson, has been released from the hospital.
Jessica Wright spent her last day of summer break attending funeral services for two of her classmates.
"We've just got to take it one day at a time each day," said Wright.
River Sosebee and Joshua Roberts would've been juniors at Murray County High School beginning Tuesday.
"It's going to be weird not seeing them smiling or joking around in the hallways. You could always see them, they were so tall," said Wright.
And like Jessica Wright, many teens at the funeral faced the sad reality of beginning classes Tuesday without two of their peers.
"They were like brothers to me. I Loved them both, but it's hard," said Donald King.
Yvonne King's son went to school with Josh and River. She told us the news of Thursday's crash is any mother's nightmare.
"It's just going to be hard knowing that they're not going to graduate with Donald like they should," said King.
57-year-old Bryan Bartley was also laid to rest Monday.
Flags are at half staff in Dalton in his memory. He was a waste supervisor for the City for more than 17-years and was looking toward retirement.
He was cutting grass Thursday, when troopers say he was hit by the truck the teens were in.
Monday, his manager told us they lost a valuable employee and friend.
"He was a quiet talker and a slow talker but very intelligent, very smart man. And he loved the outdoors and he loved hunting and fishing," said Reece Carroll, Bartley's manager.
18-year-old Chelsie Hullender -who was also in the accident- was laid to rest Sunday.
