"There hasn't been a day that went by that I haven't spoke to her ... besides the day she passed," said Jasmine's friend Shoneequa Howard.

Nineteen-year-old Jasmine Wade was killed on Sunday when the car she was driving veered off the road and hit a tree. Hospital Staff say her passenger is still in fair condition.

"It is so sad that she has been taken from all of us," said Howard.

Troopers say no alcohol was involved and both Wade and her passenger were wearing seat belts. Friends and family say they are shocked about their loss.

"She just spent Thanksgiving with me and my family over to my sister's house," said friend Aurtisha Baxter.

Baxter said she attended high school with both women involved in the crash; she also says she reached out to Wade's family after she heard the news.

"I just called to see how she was doing and wanted to send my condolences to the family," said Baxter.

Wade was a 2009 graduate of Bainbridge High and was currently enrolled at Bainbridge College, where friends say she was studying to become a medical assistant.

"She was a real good person; she did anything to help somebody else," said Baxter.

"Her mother died a couple of years ago in a car wreck and that's all she talked about ... her mother," said Howard.

Wade's funeral is set for one o'clock Sunday afternoon at St. Paul Church in Bainbridge.

"I'm gonna miss her so much but what makes me happy is that she's back with her mother now; she doesn't have to worry about nothing no more," said Howard.

According to Thomas County Sheriff's Office, there were 19 crashes in Thomasville over the New Year's weekend of those, five included injuries.

    Jazz was my everything! There wasn't a day that didn't go by where I didn't get 20-30 phone calls and/or texts from her. We talked every day. I will truly miss her, but I know she's with someone that she's been missing for 3 years now - her mother, enjoy Jazz. I love you! RIP Jazzy Belle.

    Jasmine was an great person to be around. She was filled with joy and her smile is unforgettable. She was loved by many people as well as people whom was recently introduced to her. Jasmine will truly be missed. We Love You Jazzy -Shoneequah Howard-
