It's been exactly one year since the body of 24-year-old Katrina Eblen was found in Montague after she was killed by her ex-boyfriend, Jere Ramey.

Katrina's family and friends honored her life Wednesday night with a candlelight vigil.

There, loved ones shared their favorite stories about Katrina and listened to her favorite songs.

"It's emotional, it's heartbreaking, it's frustration," said Mirada Eblen, Katrina's younger sister.

Katrina was the mother of two sets of identical twins.

Miranda described her as a loving, giving and stubborn person.

A year later, she said her and her family still waits for Katrina to walk through the door.

"I'm finally coming to the realization that she's probably not," said Miranda. "It doesn't feel like it's been a year."

Miranda said Katrina's relationship with Jerry was an abusive one.

She urges anyone in an abusive relationship to step forward and seek help.

Miranda says she plans on making this vigil an annual tradition.

Ramey is now in prison serving 35 years to life.
