Heartbroken loved ones reflected on lives taken by violence or loved ones who went missing in the Tenth Annual Vigil of Love.

Catherine Doak is one of the organizers of the event. Her daughter was murdered eight years ago. She says this event helps her and other family members of victims find continue to find hope. One father agrees.

"It helps us heal because when we're together we know that somebody else is feeling this same pain I’m feeling," Jason Trent.

It’s been four years since Trent’s son, Jake, was killed in a drive-by shooting eight days before his high school graduation. The killer is still on the loose.

"The street knows there's no doubt about it and to see that person that's the most difficult part about it," the father said.

But he's not giving up on the hope that someone will eventually come forward. Until then, he'll join his extended family in sending handwritten messages to their loved ones.

The families released balloons to send those messages to their loved ones.
