Prichard, Ala. (WALA) - A candlelight vigil was held on Friday night for Re-Mano Lee Campbell. Campbell was murdered outside of his home earlier this week.
His mother, a pastor and chaplain for the Prichard Police Department, found out about her son's death while her home was on fire. The person responsible for gunning Campbell down is still on the run.
A pastor at the ceremony prayed, "Lord, we come tonight because you are the prince of peace."
Despite hopeful, optimistic words, there's little comfort in a tragic death. So a crowd gathered together in hope - hope for a better tomorrow and hope that their loved one is finally at peace.
Re-Mano Lee Campbell was gunned down outside of his home on Wednesday night. Two nights later, his life is being remembered.
Campbell's mother, Patricia Zine said, "Somehow, I'm getting through it, that justice will be done."
Not a tear nor an embrace will bring back Re-Mano's smile, but this family is hanging on.
Zine said, "[We're] being very prayerful, and just ... just ... maintaining."
Campbell left behind a wife and four children.
"They may not have a father, but I have a whole lot of family support, and we're going to make it," said Campbell's wife, Eugenia. "Rest assured, we're going to make it. Prayer will get us there."
The light of Campbell's life was snuffed out far too soon, and his family is praying that the killer is brought to justice.
