A Vigil to Remember Slain Best Friends Kevin Moro and Oscar Humes

The Moro and Humes families of Punta Gorda Town continue to grieve the loss of their loved ones.  In the wake of the tragedy they have organized a candlelight vigil which they hope will bring other families together in the name of peace and solidarity.  While they have not heard anything official from investigators, the families are moving ahead with their own initiative in trying to cope with their misfortune.  According to Nicole Moro, younger sister of Kevin Moro, they are anticipating a record crowd on Saturday evening at the P.G. Central Park.
