One was a Hello Kitty fanatic who loved her grandmother very much. The other was a confident and thoughtful girl with a smile that would brighten anyone's day.

Those were just some of the ways friends and relatives of Phoebe Lo, 19, and Michelle Phoe, 18, remembered the two girls who died in a fatal car crash in Tampines on Thursday.

They showed up in full force at the girls' wakes yesterday to pay their last respects, some crying uncontrollably.

The teenagers were killed when the car they were travelling in crashed into a tree in Tampines Road. Both had been in the back seat and were apparently flung out of the vehicle.
