LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A candlelight vigil was held for the brothers and Cameron University graduates who were killed in a plane crash last week.

Friends, family and classmates gathered at the McMahon Centennial Complex to light candles, and remember the lives of Marshall and Philip Cabe, who died shortly after a plane took off for a skydiving tour. While the weather moved the ceremony, it didn't stop from hundreds from joining the vigil.

One of the vigil organizers says this is just one way that the community can start healing.

"It's still really tough,” said Robert Champ, vigil organizer. “The fraternity, myself and friends and family, we're just a few days after losing a friend, a brother, a son. So it's still really tough, and so it's not going to get easier, but we're looking forward to one day at a time."

There wasn't a dry eye in the crowd as they listened to different friends and family talk about the brothers. They family also came wearing blue ribbons, and spoke to the group about the brother’s lives.
