Newlyweds remembered during funeral

PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. - Family and friends gathered in Phillipsburg, New Jersey Saturday to give a final good-bye to two newlyweds who died in a tragic accident in North Carolina one week ago.

Mourners lined up for the memorial service for Will and Jamie Reid at the Doyle-Devlin Funeral Home.

The couple had only been married about three months, and we expecting their first child.

Jamie and Will were teachers at inner-city schools in Philadelphia.

Will was a graduate from Philipsburg High School.

The couple was riding to the airport in a Town Car after a friend's wedding last Sunday when the driver lost control and crashed into a tree.

Loved ones say the couple had a special bond.

Will Reid's aunt, Kristine Taranovich, said, "They were giving back to the community and it's just a shame that it's no longer. It's too bad we don't get benefit from them anymore. "

Some of Will's students also attended the services.

They say he was a beloved and popular teacher.
