It's a problem that results in more deaths in Florida than homicides.

Suicide is a major public concern with close to 3,000 reported in Florida in 2012.

Big Bend Hospice is hosting "Lighting the Darkness", hoping to stop an issue they say represents the 8th largest cause of death in Florida.

Tonight, loved ones lost to suicide will be remembered.

Friends and family were encouraged to share photos, memories, quotes, or poems in advance.

This even is being held on the eve of the 12th Annual Suicide Prevention Day, which is tomorrow at the Capitol.

They'll remember lost loves ones as family and friends share their stories.
