PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

The community is mourning the loss of two young lives taken in yesterday's murder-suicide.

"My son knew the young lady and from what I understand she was an upstanding student and as a parent we are deeply concerned," said Dan Pofesky.

Students started another site of remembrance at Anthem Preparatory Academy, the school where Ana's mother teachers.

"The point is to come out and support these people who are going through this difficulty and to make sure that they know they aren't alone, and they always have people that will do anything to help them," said Nick McHatton.

Students, parents, and teachers brought pink flowers to the memorial to honor Ana. Some people wrote notes and others shared memories.

"She was awesome, funny, cool, she was the person you would want to be around when you are feeling low," said Taylor Hill.

Dozens gathered at the vigil, comforting each other in sorrow and trying to find hope in despair.

"After tonight now I feel hope and its amazing what love can do," said Haylee Taylor.
