ALBANY - Dozens of people turned out for a candle light vigil to remember crime victims in observance of 'Victims Rights Week.' The theme was, "Fulfill the promise."

Most in attendance were victims themselves or a relative of a victim. Several said that the ceremony was important since they could surround themselves with others who had gone through the same trauma, or at least sympathize.

Sybil Collins, who works in the Dougherty County District Attorney's Office, said, "We light candles in memory of loved ones that have been lost, courage for those who live with pain everyday and hope for a safer future for all of us."

The playing of taps ended the Thursday night tribute at the First Methodist Church.
