Hundreds honor Katy high schoolers killed in accident
Trent Weber was a senior at Seven Lakes and Terra Kubala was a sophomore at Cinco Ranch. There were separate vigils for both students on Sunday evening.
It was a very emotional night filled with lots of hugs and tears as many people remembered two lives gone too soon.
“First, you just don’t believe it and now, it’s real now,” said David Hall, a friend of Weber. “Just gonna remember him and stay strong.”
In a sea of blue and orange, hundreds of people honored Weber, a varsity football player who friends said kept them laughing and was always positive.
“He couldn’t have one flaw, he was just the all-around great person,” said Jonathan Lohse. “He was just always nice and brought you up listening to everybody’s stories over here. Really just makes you smile.”
“I kinda gave him the nickname ‘Spider-Man,’ said football coach Pat Matthews. “When you throw the ball, you knew he was gonna catch it. He made every moment count and he’s going to be missed.”
And the sentiment was similar at Cinco Ranch. Many with heavy hearts paid their respects to Kubala.
“She always had a smile on her face and she was so much fun to be around and she was always laughing and she could always put a smile on your face when you were having a bad day,” said Natalie Nesbit.
“She used to work at Chili’s and so whenever I would go there and she would be like, ‘Hi, Teagan,’ just made me so happy to see her,” said Teagan Schmidt. “She’s just a ball of sunshine.”
