Support vigil for victims

It is always a tragedy when a life is lost and families are left to sort out the pieces of what happened.
However, the sadness is compounded when life is lost at the hand of another. Tonight in Ferris, a candlelight vigil will be held to honor the lives of Janine Johnson and Steve Taylor who were murdered in the community last month.
The vigil will take place tonight at 8 in the 400 block of S. Church Street where the victims lived. While authorities have not yet been able to hold anyone accountable for the crimes, area law enforcement agencies as well as the Texas Rangers have been working on the case with the hope that someone will be brought to justice for the vicious attacks.
Local police are also asking that anyone with information regarding the incident contact them immediately to help bring closure to this senseless crime.
Our thoughts and prayers have been with the families of both victims since hearing of the attacks and we hope the community and those within the surrounding cities will take a moment tonight to help remember Johnson and Taylor.
Visitors are being asked to bring candles, flash lights or glow sticks in a show of solidarity and remembrance tonight as friends and family gather to remember the tragedy that claimed their loved ones.
The best part about small communities such as Ferris is the ability to really get to know the people that call it home and we know that this loss is something that not only affects those that knew the victims, but everyone in the community as well. We encourage those that can to join the vigil tonight as a show of support for our Ellis County neighbors as they struggle to come to terms with such a tremendous loss.
