"I hope this memorial can offer collective healing into the hearts of all those who lost friends and loved ones to this horrible disease," Hidalgo County Richard F. Cortez said in a statement. "They may be gone but their memory will live on."
Hidalgo County residents who lost loved ones can still send photos along with name, city, date of birth and date of death to email@example.com.
Hidalgo County reported on Friday that 10 more residents died due to coronavirus complications and 511 more tested positive for the virus — bringing the total number of fatalities in the county to 2,293 and the total of confirmed coronavirus cases to 57,337.
