JACKSONVILLE Fla.-- Darrian Flowers is in pieces just before he enters the viewing of his best friend Jordan Davis.

"I've cried as many tears," he said. "I'm going to miss him a lot I mean it still hasn't registered with me that he's gone."

Gone, but far from forgotten; friends are joining the family of the slain teen tonight to say a final goodbye. A tough pill for any teen to swallow.

"It's not something we're going to get over in a day not even in a night or a week not even a year," said Darrian. "It's just something that's going to be in our lives forever but now that he's gone I don't think of him as dead; he lives in us within his friends and everything from now on is for him."

Bound by their pain, students at Wolfson High School say their loss has brought them closer.

"As a Wolf Pack, we stick together," said Darrian.

Students spend hours comforting each other outside the funeral home Wednesday evening. The only way they'll get through Jordan's loss is together, along with their memories.

"A lot of people loved him, we are going to remember the good times we had, not his death," said Darrian. "We are going to celebrate life."
