HUNDREDS of family members, friends and schoolmates gathered at Yavusania Village in Nadi this morning to pay their respects and bid farewell to Marika Rua, Sanaila Ruitoka and Atilai Ruitoka.

The trio, who passed away during the Nabou road accident, were fondly remembered by friends and family during the church service at the village.

They were travelling to Suva last week to support Ratu Navula College in the Powerade Deans secondary schools rugby competition when a Grace Road truck ploughed into the grey minivan they were travelling in.
