There will be a candlelight vigil for those involved in Tuesday's train collision in Biloxi.

A former east Biloxi resident that was moved to tears when he heard about the tragedy is organizing a candlelight vigil for Sunday night at 6:30.  

Jersome Harrison plans to have as many as 300 candles for the vigil at Doris Bush Park on Esters Boulevard, just east of the Main Street crossing where it happened.  

Mayor Gilich suggested Bush Park for the site, saying it's important everyone come together to process what we have come through as a community, and pray for those who perished and were injured.  

Councilman Felix Gines, whose ward includes the Main Street area, says they consider these visitors part of our extended family here in Biloxi, and that he's proud of the heroes that offered aid and comfort that day.
