PASCO, Wash. -- On Thursday night, members of the community hosted a candlelight vigil to remember those lost to violence. The vigil was organized by a group of mothers who all face the same horrible reality. They lost children at the hands of others.

The names of recent victims were read aloud; their memory was sounded by a bell.

For one Wenatchee man, Thursday night was about being a good father. Twenty years ago, his daughter and ex-wife were brutally murdered by a serial killer in their home. He says every day is difficult, but he’s managed to keep their memory alive by helping others.

The vigil was held in Volunteer Park in Pasco. Sunday marked the start of “National Crime Victims Rights Week.”
