Albany- The Candlelight Vigil of Remembrance and Hope honored those who lost their lives due to acts of violence.

In December, Jeanne Crisler was killed by a hit and run driver. Her family lit the candle of love Tuesday night in her honor.

"What can you say? She just kept my brothers and I in touch together. She held us up. She was our rock to stand on," says her son Chris Crisler.

No one has been charged with Crisler's death. Tuesday night's vigil is part of National Crime Victims' Rights Week. Wednesday afternoon, church bells will ring in honor of all crime victims.
