Candlelight Vigil Held For Slain Grocery Store Owner:

NBC Washington reported:

At the vigil, there were songs and prayers. Those who knew Patel shared their thoughts about a well respected and loved businessman, husband and father. His 22-year-old son, Chris Patel, was there in the shop with his mom when his dad was shot.

Obviously distraught, and in tears, all he could say was “Thank you. Thank you for everything.”
Patel also leaves behind two sons in India. The family is desperately trying to get them here for the funeral.
