NACO, Ariz. - The family of the fallen Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie attended an emotional candlelight vigil in Naco, Ariz. this evening.
A diverse group of residents of the border communiy, Border Patrol agents as well as members of Ivie's family gathered at Saint Michael's Catholic Perish to honor the memory of agent Ivie.
Prayers were given and hymns were sung in what was the end of an emotional day for Ivie's family. Nicholas' brother, Joel Ivie, who is also a Border Patrol agent shared what kind of man his brother was to the group that attended the vigil.
"Nick wasn't one to come and boast abbout things that he did, that was just who he was...part of his normal life," Joel Ivie said.
The event culminated in a candlelight vigil, which was a symbol for the light he brought into the lives of those he knew.
Seth Polley, who helped organize the event said it is heart-breaking to think about what Ivie's family is going through.
"We just pray for the family tonight and recommit ourselves to this desert, these borderlands," Polley said.
