The annual "Season to Remember" service allowed people to honor and remember the lives of their loved ones they have lost.

The event is held each year to remember victims of violent crimes in Tennessee.

It's a time where families and friends can meet other people going through the same experience -- and a way to celebrate the lives lost.

We spoke to one mother, Kim Ledford, whose son Dustin was killed by a drunk driver.

To try to help stop the cycle, Ledford and her husband head up a scholarship for students in Bradley County in Dustin's memory.

Thursday night, family and friends hung ornaments on memorial wreaths in remembrance of their loved ones.

The wreaths will soon be on display at the State Capitol.
