Friends and neighbors of the family of Christopher Robles held a candlelight vigil to show their support Monday night. More than a week ago, the four year old was struck and killed by a van outside of Hartsfield Elementary.

Now, neighbors are sending prayers and thoughts to the family. Nathan Ballentine, a neighbor said, "This is a inner neighborhood crisis, an inner neighborhood tragedy. Hartsfield is just up the street, so it's on us to respond some how."

Monday night, the Robles family was met at their home with cards and flowers from dozens of neighbors.

    I am praying for the family. I can't even imagine their pain at this moment. I will never understand why God does what he does. I know he has a bigger plan, but he should have programmed us differently, it would be torture to have to live my life without my child. What a nightmare. I hope they can find peace someday. I just can't imagine...
