Hearts ache as people in New Zealand and abroad mourn the deaths of at least 16 people in the devastating volcano eruption on White Island in the Bay of Plenty last Monday.
In the wake of the tragedy, families, and friends of the victims are forced to adjust to life without those they loved most.
These are the faces, names, and identities of those who lost their lives.
Krystal Browitt - 21, Australia
Browitt was from Melbourne. It's understood the veterinary student had been on the Ovation of the Seas cruise with her family celebrating her 21st birthday. Her father and sister were reportedly hospitalised following the eruption.
Hayden Marshall Inman - New Zealand
A Whakatane tour guide, Inman has been remembered as "full of life".
Inman's brother Mark told The Project last week Hayden was "a real team player".
"He was a guy that would do anything for anyone."
The Hollander family
Berend Hollander, 16, and brother Matthew, 13, were formally identified on Sunday night. Dad Martin was identified on Monday, and mum Barbara has yet to be identified.
"We are absolutely heartbroken by this loss," a statement from the Hollander family said, as reported by news.com.au.
"They had a positive and lasting impact on everyone's paths they crossed."
Tipene Maangi - 24, New Zealand
Maangi was also a tour guide from Whakatane, named by police on Sunday.
Maangi's cousin, Anihera Paku, told Newshub he wasn't supposed to be working last Monday but was called in to pick up an extra shift and hasn't been heard from since.
Paku described Maangi as the "laugh of the crowd".
Julie Richards, 47, and daughter Jessica, 20 - Australia
A vigil was held in Queensland to remember the mother and daughter on Sunday night after they were confirmed dead by local news sources on Wednesday. Jessica was formally named by police on Monday.
"Jessica attended one of our local schools and was well known in AFL circles, and Julie had so many friends in the local community," said Angela Owen, a councillor in the Queensland suburb of Calamvale.
"It is a tragedy and a lot of people are reeling from this loss," Owen told ABC Australia.

"We enjoyed the first five days of our trip and have many memories that will stay with us forever," the statement said, as reported by news.com.au.
