A grieving community says goodbye to three of their own.

A Penrose couple and their young son died in a head-on collision 10 days ago.

Thursday, friends and family came together in their memory. More than a hundred came to pay their respects to 12 year-old Jesse Sprague and his parents, Lauri and Chip.

The 3 died in a car crash a few miles out of Penrose earlier this month.

Chip Sprague's sister, Robin Helle, shared her thoughts.

"They were humble people. They would talk to anybody. They would befriend anyone. That's just the way they were."

Amanda Leyta, the young woman who also died in the crash, was from the Penrose area.

Chip Sprague's relatives say this tragedy is bringing their families together and wish them nothing but love and support.
