The family of a Stratford woman who police say was killed by her son last week held a vigil Wednesday night in her memory.
The daughter and co-workers of 54-year-old Pam Walker stood together at what they say has been the most painful point in their lives.
They declined to talk about any of the details surrounding Walker's death, determined to make the day about love and celebration.
Loved ones instead chose to focus on the life Walker lived and the positive impact that life had on so many people, especially during the 17 years she worked at Walmart, where her smile helped light up every aisle.
Patricia Bember, Walker's co-worker, says, "Never in a million years would I have thought anything put Pam in something like this, a tragedy such as this one.”
Bember says she and many other co-workers thought of Walker as family.
"She was just always surprised when we reached out and did nice things for her because she was a person that did so much for everybody else," she says.
Co-workers and family held a candlelight vigil outside her home as a way to say thank you to the beloved local resident.
"We're just asking that everyone come in peace in respect for Pam, her kids and also her neighbors," Bember says. "And she will truly be missed, and she's loved by everybody."
