Lyall's host special ceremony
They're about a third of the way there, and Sunday's fundraiser will hopefully get the Lyall family one step closer to getting their goal accomplished.
Mary Lyall, the mother of Suzanne Lyall said, "To have a place to grieve and reflect is what we're looking for."
The Lyall's daughter Suzanne has been missing for seven years now, and in her honor and memory they want to give families who have a loved one missing a Missing Person's Remorial, a combination of the words remember and memorial.
Lyall continued by saying, "The memorial is going to look like a big candle, glass sides, in center is going to be a pedestal with a perpetual flame."

It's set to sit at the highest point on the state museum's property. Family members who've dealt with years of loss, like Patricia Conrad who's daughter in law Audrey Mae Heron has been missing for more than two years, say a remorial is extremely meaningful.
Conrad said, "To keep the focus on how many people are missing in this state alone, never mind throughout the country, its something that's important to all of us, we can go there and our missing loved ones are not forgotten."
The Lyall's hope to get the remorial built by the beginning of April, right around the time of Missing Person's Day.
