In a Twitter post, her stepmother, Tara Petito, asked followers to honor “Gabby and all domestic violence victims,” asking them to “please light up the night on the one-year anniversary” of her death on Aug. 27, using the hashtags, “#togtherwecan, #domesticviolenceawareness, #gabbypetito, and #thereishelpifneeded.”

Her father, Joseph Petito, who now lives in Vero Beach, Florida, tweeted the post, asking that everyone honor his daughter and other victims around the world. He added, “We are asking you to light up the night for those who can’t be here.”

“August 27th, Light Up The Night. Whether a candle, lantern or string lights in your backyard, light up the darkness for a few moments to honor those who lost their lives to domestic violence. There are some that bring a light so great to the world, that even after they have gone,” the message read.

An event is planned for North Port, Florida.
