The Waynesboro Police Department's parking lot turned into the perfect stage for those wanting to pay their respects to Kevin Quick.

Candles were lit and balloons released in honor of the life of Kevin Quick.

"He's the son that every mother would want to have," said Pamela Smiley, vigil organizer.

Hundreds of people showed up to pay tribute to the Waynesboro Reserve Police Captain.

"He didn't deserve this. He would have given you the shirt off his back," said Quick's Aunt.

Friends and family shared some of their most cherished moments and offered prayers for Quick's mother and daughter.

"I'm brokenhearted because that little girl will never be able to go to the park with her father," said a vigil speaker.

Kevin Quick went missing last Friday launching a statewide effort to find him, bringing together communities from all over to try to find answers.

The vigil concluded with the lifting of candles to the sky in prayer.

The reward fund for information leading to Quick's whereabouts has topped over $41,000.

We won't know what will be done with the reward until police confirm details about how Quick was found.

The reward organizer hopes a trust will be set up for Quick's daughter.

Contribute to this fund in person or by mail at either of these locations:

Waynesboro Police Department, 250 S. Wayne Ave. Waynesboro, VA or New Age Auto, 800 E. Main St. Waynesboro, VA

The money will be held in trust by the Waynesboro Police Dept. until all trials are completed.
