I saw on the news a candlelight vigil was held for Rylee McCollum at Demoret Park on Monday evening. What a tragic loss. Sadly this is not the first young person with connections to Montrose as is displayed on the plaque beneath the flag there to lose his life in the service to our country. My only request would be if candles are in use in future vigils, please have a way to contain the wax as it is spread all over Demoret Park and now the city bears the expense of cleaning it up.
