Candlelight vigil for Runyon, Paz tonight

For Newton Now

A candlelight vigil will be in remembrance of Alyssa Runyon and Zaylynn Paz at 8 p.m. today (Friday, Aug. 11), north of Roanoke Court in Newton.

The family has invited everyone to come and join them. They will have a balloon launch of orange and pink balloons—Aylssa and Zaylynn’s favorite colors.

“We all appreciate all the donations being made but we are far from our goal,” Runyon’s friend wrote on Facebook. “Please join us in supporting this beautiful family and easing some of the financial burden they are facing due to this extreme act of violence that has taken these two beautiful girls from their lives.”
