Hundreds of candles illuminated the grounds at Fayetteville Memorial Cemetery Friday night.
The cemetery places luminaries throughout the grounds as part of a Good Friday remembrance effort. This is the fourth year it's been done.
Relatives of those buried in the cemetery simply call to make a memorial request, and a luminary candle bearing the deceased person's name is lit at no charge.
Last year more than 1500 people drove through the cemetery to see the candles
