COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Central Ohio chapter of Parents of Murdered Children and Other Survivors of Homicide Victims (POMC) held its 29th annual Candlelight Memorial Ceremony Monday.
The event included a roll call of murder victim names with family members lighting a candle in memory of their lost loved one.
At the end of the ceremony, there was a presentation of victims’ photos.
“As our nation continues to deal with mass murders. we will gather together to remember our victims of homicide and the nation’s, too,” POMC wrote in a press release.
POMC is a non-profit self-help grief support group for survivors of homicide victims. The Central Ohio chapter started in 1990 and meets once a month to offer each other support through the numerous stages of grief, the judicial system, and the Parole Block program.
