On Thursday, the small town of Alice, Texas, paid its respects to the families of four young men in their community who are believed to have died in a traffic crash hundreds of miles away in Gadsden County, Fla. Between 100-200 motorists and their passengers rolled through the center of town with their lights on, then doubled back to gather at the starting point for prayer and verbal tributes to each of the men.

Florida Highway Patrol officials are still awaiting DNA tests to officially confirm the identities of the men, who died Wednesday afternoon in a fiery crash near Mile Marker 170 on Interstate 10. But the families of the men and their friends have accepted what they believe to be the truth and are grieving the loss of Mark Guerrero, Ovidio Villarreal, Steven Garcia and Arnold Galvan III. All were in their early to mid 20s, and all but Garcia had small children.
