Corpus Christi (KIII News) — Corpus Christi has become on step closer to getting it's first memorial garden for homicide victims.
After Breanna Wood's death, her mother Fallon wanted a place to see her name and the names of other violent crime victims in Nueces County.
A place where they can be remembered with a view. A place like Oleander point.
"My daughters death will not be in vein," Wood said.
Two years have passed since Breanna Wood's remains were found.
Her family is still trying to figure out what led to her brutal murder.
Her mom doing her best to keep her daughter alive.
So she brought an idea to the City of Corpus Christi.
"Austin has one, Houston has one, San Antonio has one," Wood said. "Everybody has a beautiful memorial...not Corpus Christi."
She said the mayor and city were on board.
The memorial garden will honor people killed where families can mourn thier loved ones.
Wood said Oleander Point is important to her because she spent many times there thinking about her daughter.
85 days of finding solace in the waves of the ocean.
"I want a peace where people can go other than a cemetary uou know so it's going to be beautiful," Wood said.
She's still waiting on height restrictions and for Parks and Recreation to approve the location.
After that she said the shovels will be ready.
Wood hopes that the memorial will bring peace to the families that are still to their journey to healing.
The crime victim memorial garden foundation is accepting donations to support and build the monument.
