Albany -- One at a time families who have been affected by crime in the Albany area and community leaders lit candles in remembrance of those lost to violence.
Hailey Camp and her siblings lost their father on March 14th 2007.
"He was a security guard at out apartment complex and he was doing his nightly walks and he was shot and killed."
The former paramedic was gunned down outside his East Albany apartment after he interrupted a drug deal.
Camp walked outside to run them off, and was shot in the face.
Camp said "People always say times will get easier." But that's not the case.
Judge Denise Marshall knows all too well the difficulties these families face.
"These families are struggling with a loss sometime of a human, of a loss of finances, and just the total grieving process. And we're very fortunate here in Dougherty County to have a number of organizations that come together to support these victims as they journey back."
She said these faces, even though we may not recognize them, affect us all.
"The families of those that may have lost life and limb feel it more, but we all feel it, so it's our job as a community to team together and to support those who lost in the greatest way and to make them whole, and to stop that from ever happening again."
The Camp family lit a Candle of Love in his honor, and said it's still hard to go on without him.
For all the crime victims, for every drop of blood shed, and for all the families who survive them blue ribbons were placed on a wreath in their honor.
