Dozens of Allen county residents today remembered those who took their own lives by their own hands.
The Suicide Awareness and Prevention Walk was a chance to talk about the lives of loved ones lost to suicide and how to prevent someone else from taking their life.
The problem continues to grow.
Organizer Mary Jane Mullenhour says there were 16 suicides in Allen county last year.
This was the sixth annual Suicide Awareness and Prevention walk for Allen county.
