LUBBOCK, Texas -

Second Baptist Church is hosting its annual Memorial Day Service on Sunday.

The ceremony will honor 35 Gold Star families who've lost a loved one in military service.

Danny Koch, a member of the Friend of the Monument of Courage says the church will still honor fallen West Texas soldiers.

"We're gonna continue to do it because life goes on. and those soldiers, they gave their last full measure of devotion, they didn't take a day off," he said.

The private service will take place Sunday at 7:45 p.m. for family members of those who have died this year.

The ceremony will end with a roll call of the 32 lost servicemen.

You can honor them by leaving your porch light on this Sunday evening.
