The community is coming together tonight to remember a man who lost his life last month.

The Saint Benedictine sisters hosting a take back the site vigil at 1019 East Avenue. Family, friends and community members gather to remember 44-year-old Keeno Butler. Butler died on March 18th. Erie Police say 44-year-old Windi Thomas called 9-1-1 that day, saying she killed her boyfriend. Butler’s sister says their relationship had a lot of issues.

“If death is there you can’t run from it because it has got a hold on you. They thought it was love. It wasn’t love. It was death,” said Sandra Jean Butler, Keeno’s sister.

Sandra says she plans to use holy water from the vigil to bless Keeno’s ashes.
