SOUTH SALT LAKE -- Friends and family held a candlelight vigil Thursday night to honor Sherry Black, a South Salt Lake book dealer who was killed in November.

The vigil was held at the Black's home and bookstore, B&W Billiards and Books, where she was stabbed and beaten to death Nov. 30.

"I just want to thank you all for being here and being our friends through the years, helping us get through this ordeal," said Earl Black, Sherry's husband.

Sherry's daughter, Heidi Miller, said her parents loved the place and called it home for 37 years.

"She always had time to help others and we appreciate you taking time to remember her and how kind and loving she was," Heidi said.

The family thanked investigators who are working to solve the case, which remains unsolved.

They have put up a billboard on the 600 South off-ramp in downtown Salt Lake City, started a website to solicit tips and had the case featured on the America's Most Wanted website.
