ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) -- Officials in Maryland are holding their 25th annual memorial services for crime victims and their families.

Officials say there will be four memorial services held Sunday in Calvert County, Worcester County, Baltimore City and Montgomery County. Officials say the services are meant to give hope and honor the state's murdered and missing crime victims.

Each memorial service will include musical performances and speakers. And family members and volunteer advocates will read the names of over 2,000 people who have been the victims of crimes including murder and vehicular manslaughter. Each ceremony will also include a memorial wall where families can hang up photos of their loved ones.
