Families remember loved ones they lost to homicide

Tree of Angels

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - As we come together to celebrate the holidays many families may be spending this time of year without a loved one due to homicide.

20 years ago a Corpus Christi woman started a local branch of the Tree of Angels, a ceremony where family and friends can come together and remember the homicide victim.

Tree of Angels was first started in 1991 in Austin, Texas to recognize the difficult times family and friends may have celebrating the holidays without somebody important, especially children who may have lost a parent.
