Family and friends gathered Thursday night to celebrate the life of Eric Armstead with a candle light vigil. While time can heal most wounds, no one struggles more with the loss of a child than a mother. For Sherry Davis, the hurt of losing her son will never go away.
Sherry Davis said "Its a big hurt, I don't know how to explain it to you its just a feeling a mother should never have to go through.
After two years, Armstead's aunt feels that violence in Lima's youth has not gotten any better, if anything worse.
Jamica Davis said "It's more in the schools now than its ever been."
Davis also said that she is thankful for everyone who came out to share in Eric's memory Thursday evening, and wants to send a message to all parents out there to help stop violence.
Sherry Davis added, "Parents need to get their kids and sit down and talk to their kids, because it all starts in the home, so you will know what's going on with your kids."
Armstead would now be 18 years old starting his senior year at Lima Senior.
