In a sea of darkness, light shines at the Legion Baseball Field in Valley.
"His smile was just so contagious, he was a great friend."
Candles held high for a teen taken too soon, Jacob Dickmeyer.
"I was at work when I found out I started balling I couldn't contain it."
Monday morning the hearts of so many ached for Dickmeyer. Police say he and Colby Burke were speeding and weaving in and out of traffic.
Dickmeyer drove the car that rolled near 208th and West Dodge. It's a moment his friend Colby Burke can't recall.
"I woke up when we started rolling and immediately covered my head and then I think I got knocked out during the accident cause I woke up during the hospital."
Burke injured his leg and hip. He wishes he could take back every second.
"Jacob was a good kid, he was really outgoing willing to be friends with anybody."
A court document shows Burke admitted to investigators he and Dickmeyer had been drinking hours before the crash.
The car Dickmeyer was driving belonged to Amanda Heiman and she served the two at a nearby bar and grill before the accident.
"The fact that I mean being in Colby's shoes knowing your best friend died right next to you I couldn't imagine."
Hundreds of friends and family stand huddled together to remember the life of the party.
"He lived life to the fullest, and we are so proud of him he's gonna be dearly missed."
She hopes young teens and drivers learned a lesson through her nephews tragedy.
