Pastor Barb Johnston lead the vigil and encouraged them to keep the victims and their families in their thoughts and prayers for a long time to come.

"Grief doesn't just happen for a few days and then it's done," said Pastor Barb Johnston. "It's a whole process. So I think it's really important that when this tragedy comes to mind to not just stop and talk about what happened, stop and pray because these families will need that for a long time."

All 17 victims have been identified at this time.
