Geneva, Ala. (WSFA) - A community torn apart by tragedy pulled together Saturday.

Days after the deadly shootings in Geneva County the community joined together for a candlelight vigil.

Those communities gathered to remember and celebrate the lives that were lost.

Dozens showed up at Fowler Park in Geneva where they listened to the words of prayer from Dr. Mike Shirah of Maple Avenue Baptist Church.

Dr. Shirah spoke to those in attendance about faith in times of great adversity.

"Out of this the people are rallying together and there will be some good come out of this but we don't want to infer that this will compensate for the bad that there healing," said Dr. Shirah.

Organizers say they hope this strengthened bond in the community continues.
