A candlelight vigil memorializes seven Tallahassee homeless who died this year. The Big Bend Homeless Coalition says there are more than 900 homeless people in Tallahassee at any given time. They also say most homeless deaths can be prevented.

Stephanie Shephard with the Big Bend Homeless Coalition said, "It's a large group of different types of people that come together to recognize people who passed away to make sure that we are celebrating their lives and recognizing that their lives did mean something to, often, a lot of people. And we want to make sure that they are not forgotten."

The Homeless Vigil is the tenth annual and it is a part of a national memorial of homeless deaths throughout the nation
