TULSA - Survivors of crime and the families who lost loved ones joined together at LaFortune park in Tulsa on Tuesday night.
Crime victims and survivors gathered at the park to plant a flower in memory of lost loved ones and to view a photo tribute.
Diana Dean, a woman who lost her daughter to violence in 1998, says she attends the ceremony every year.
"It's sad, but I do it for her. I do it to honor her, to remember her," she said.
The annual Day of Remembrance ceremony pays tribute to victims and brings together dozens of families from the community. It's also an an opportunity for families to show support for others who lost a loved one as a result of violence.
Ted and Debbies' Flowers donated the flowers in memory of their son, Jameson Matthew Wilson, who was murdered in Tulsa seven years ago.
The ceremony is held during the National Crime Victims Rights Week.
