It comes in an especially violent year for Albuquerque when the city has already blown past the homicide record from all previous years. The group invites anyone who wants to remember a murdered loved one to bring pictures and candles. They can also send in the person’s name and date of death beforehand to robdnewmexico@gmail.com.
