Vigil held for Brandon Herrera

GREENVILLE, TX (KLTV) - By the hundreds they came to mourn the loss of a young life that ended too soon.

Relying on one another, a community came together to find peace in such a tragic story. Together, they lit candles in memory of 2-year-old Brandon Herrera.

"A life's been lost and we'll never know what that life was meant to be," said Rodney Smith.

To the sound of pipes, the crowd of men, women and children released balloons into the sky. Even though Brandon is gone, this community will never forget him or how they found unity through a young life lost.
