WAIPAHU (KHNL)- They gathered to say goodbye. Mourners filled a Leeward Oahu church for the final aloha for a Kapolei teenager.

On July 24, 18 year old Tanya House and 16 year old Leslie Kim were killed when the car they were riding in went airborne and slammed into the bottom of this ditch on Roosevelt Avenue in Kalaeloa.

Now friends and family pay their last respects. Tanya's teacher Liane Sawyer gave a eulogy. "Tanya's legacy for me is to remind me to celebrate that which is different and unique, to remind me to express to those people that are important to me, that they are indeed extremely important."

House's father plays a song for his daughter. The Kapolei High grad was planning to study fashion design at UH. Her favorite hats and gloves were on display tonight as her stunned family and friends try to picture life without her.

New Hope Pastor Brandon Ahu urged everyone, "Remember the life that Tanya lives and celebrate that. We're all going to miss seeing her."

The driver of the car - who friends say was Tanya's boyfriend- has not been charged in this accident.
