This week is National Crime Victims' Rights Week.
Those in attendance lit candles to remember the family members and friends who were killed during a crime.
Josephine Lonon, survived an near deadly attack when her daughter's father - Roy Smith - drove down from Virginia and shot her and her daughter multiple times.
"I am a survivor and a lot of people who have been victims of crime are survivors, hold your head and continue to progress. You try to move from it, I mean you never forget it, but you move on from it. You take it that you're still here, like you got a second chance and having my mom here is a blessing and I wouldn't have it any other way," Lonon says.
Law enforcement praised Lonon for testifying against Smith during his trial in March.
He was sentenced to 60 years in prison.
