MIDLAND-It might not seem like a place for a candlelight vigil -- but for friends and family of Christopher Lee Moore, The Beal Skate Park in Midland was an obvious choice.
17-year-old Christopher Moore passed away March 10 in a tragic car accident near his hometown of Dumas--where he was also laid to rest.
It left many of his friends without a chance to say goodbye, and tonight was that chance.
"My heart's so broken, but still so full of love because I see all these people here,’ said Christine Moore, Christopher’s mother. “It's just amazing."
"He always made me smile, always made me laugh, he was just my best friend all the way around,” said friend Corey Kropff.
His loved ones said a few words in his honor and a slideshow was shown on the side of Moore and his friends' favorite skate bowl.
They say they will never forget his contagious smile.
