Moment of Blessing due at scene of shootings

Associated Ministries announced it will hold a Moment of Blessing on Friday at the site of the shootings of David and Crystal Brame.

The ceremony will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Harbor Plaza shopping center in Gig Harbor at Olympic Drive and Point Fosdick Drive Northwest.

The ceremonies normally are held at Pierce County locations where homicides occur. They are intended to reclaim the site and provide support to the victim's family members, friends and the neighboring community.

Friday's ceremony will be different because it was a suicide and an attempted homicide.

"We will be focusing on the horrible violence that took place there," said the Rev. David Alger.

The ceremony will include times of prayer and reflection for David Brame, Crystal Brame and their two children.

Representatives from several churches, including Chapel Hill Presbyterian and Peninsula Lutheran, plan to attend.
