A candlelight vigil in Salt Lake City's Pioneer Park Thursday evening honored 76 homeless Utahns who died in 2013. Vigil organizers hoped to raise awareness that disease is three to four times more prevalent in homeless populations and life expectancy is shorter by decades. They urged the public to support homeless providers.
