The Fourth Annual Program to Honor Homicide Victims

On September 18, 2008, hundreds of family members, friends and concerned community members participated in the 4th annual Honor Program at the the Garden of Peace.   Lt. Governor Timothy Murray gave the keynote address followed by  Les Gosule and Heidi Gosule, father and sister of Melissa Gosule, Melissa Gauthier, daughter of Paul Gauthier, and Kim Odom, mother of Steven P. Odom, who spoke about their loved ones whose names are in the Garden.

The ceremony began with Mike Verge singing the song he wrote for "The Garden."  The PALS Children’s Chorus whose voices brought so much to the ceremony.   In a moving tribute, the program ended with the reading of the forty-six new names who were commemorated that evening

Special thanks to...

Everyone who helped the Honor Program run so smoothy - from the flowers to the pot luck reception.
