Beach Memorial for Graham Lance

Graham’s classmates and friends wasted no time organizing a way to honor his name.
Dozens gathered on the shores of Front Beach in Ocean Springs this evening for a candlelight vigil in memory of the Ocean Springs teen.
The crowd took turns reminiscing on Graham’s bubbly personality and consoling one another and Graham’s mother, Brandie Lance.
His mother tells News 25 the loss of her son is extremely hard, considering she just lost her husband a little over a year ago. “Just known for his tremendous heart. That’s what everybody, all these people talk about. What kind of a heart Graham had. I’m just completely thankful and just overwhelmed at this tremendous support is out here and I know how much my son was loved.”
Close friends of Graham released balloons at the end of the vigil. Each person attached a personalized, handwritten message to the end of the string.
