Caitlin Beling of South Portland lights a candle to honor one of the 43 homeless people who died in Portland in 2015. Being was among those who attended Preble Street’s Homeless Persons’ Memorial Vigil at Monument Square late Monday afternoon. The annual event takes place on the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, and participants include people who are homeless, those who have been homeless, those who work with homeless people, and those who are grateful not to be homeless.
