A somber ceremony was held Saturday night at the Corpus Christi Water Garden. Dozens of families gathered to light candles in memory of children who have passed away during pregnancy or in infancy.

This was the 5th year for the local Wave of Light ceremony.

Among those who attended was Jeanette Cantu who lit both a blue and a pink candle. Cantu told 3 News, "about five and a half years ago I lost a set of twins, a little boy and a little girl. It was hard for me to connect with the community. I found the (Wave of Light ) Facebook page and it has brought me a lot closer, because I've met people who have experienced what I've experienced. "
