It was a solemn day for friends and family of Devorah Stubin. With so many pouring into the Jewish Memorial Chapel in Clifton, countless mourners had to watch the funeral service from monitors outside.
"I don't even have words, it's so tragic. I don't know what to say. It's really hurtful - we can't undersand," says friend Chana Gorelik.
Stubin's lifelong friends say the 22-year-old was always trying to help others. She worked with children with special needs, and always had a positive outlook on life.
After vanishing several days ago, search teams discovered her body in her car at the bottom of the Passaic River on Saturday night.
Police say on Thursday, she called her mother crying and sounding lost. Officials say her car careened off a steep embankment in Wallington before crashing into the water. As investigators try to figure out what went wrong, loved ones say her life was cut too short.
Family members say Stubin suffered from seizures, but investigators do not know at this point if that is what caused the crash.
