Adela Lopez, 51, prays on her knees with her friend Jackie Irizarry, far left, daughter Majorie Lacy, right, and granddaughter Kaiyle Lacy, 5, at a memorial for her other daughter, Nancy Lopez-Ruiz, near the spot where she was killed on Sunrise Blvd. in a traffic accident on September 10, 2010. Lopez traveled from Bradenton to place flowers there a month before the year anniversary of her daughter's death. She will not be here on the actual day because the family will be celebrating Nancy's life in Bradenton. Irzarry will place flowers at the site for Lopez in her absence.
