David, who has developmental disabilities, is now coping with the shocking crime by baking cakes to bring to a vigil in Edson’s favorite color.
He said he wants to bring 1,000 slices: enough for every person who attends the vigil to celebrate the lives of two young boys.
“I can’t wrap my head around it. There’s two ways to go, you either sit there and think about it or you get up and you ty to help, and that’s what we’re trying to do because I was physically sick sitting there and thinking about it,” Debra said.
The candlelight vigil will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday outside of 245 Prospect St. in Brockton.
