Sunday marked the last day for folks to visit the 58 crosses created for the victims of 1 October.

Folks came by for the final day to pay the respects and see them one last time.

The wooden crosses were originally placed at the memorial at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign before being moved to the Clark County Museum in November. 

The crosses were hand-made by Greg Zanis, who traveled from Chicago to Las Vegas after the shooting to deliver them.

"We all support each other and do what we can to make sure these people are always remembered," said Scott Round. "Regardless if there is a cross or anything symbolic, they will always hold a place in our hearts."

The museum says the crosses will be removed soon and then placed in preservation.
