YAKIMA, Wash. -- A week after the body of David Childs was discovered lying in a planter on Front Street, the police have made an arrest.

Tuesday night, friends and family of the 70-year-old victim joined hearts and hands to remember the good times.

Dozens showed up for a candlelight vigil where Childs was murdered on North Front Street.

Members from his church choir played music in his memory. Friends kneeled to say prayers.

One woman who worked with Childs at the Yakima Museum said he had a passion for life.

"I'll miss his smile. And, he was just a great person," Reesha Cosby said. "The people I worked with at the museum, it's like a family, so to me he was like an extension of my family."

There will be a memorial service for David Childs tomorrow afternoon at Central Lutheran Church here in Yakima.
