SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

More than a week later, a memorial sitting outside of the house on Page Boulevard continues to grow as the families grieve.

It's hard to imagine how difficult this must be for the families.

The bodies of the three women were identified by the D.A.'s office Monday, but the families were worried well before that.

Family members want answers for 27 year-old Kayla Escalante, 34 year-old America Lyden, and 47 year-old Ernestine Ryans, whose bodies were found in and around Page Boulevard last week.

Escalante, the youngest of the three, was not reported missing to the Ludlow Police Department, but went dark on social media back in December.

America Lyden's family reported her missing in December, while Ryans went missing in March.

HALOS, a non-profit organization working with the missing persons, says its very important for people to keep looking after they're first reported, as the public starts to slowly forget as more time passes.

Western Mass News spoke with Angela Rodriguez, America's cousin, who was more like a sister.

She tells us the family is asking for prayers at this time, as they remember the heart she once had.

"She was a person that was full of life," says Rodriguez. "Had lots of love within to give, and, unfortunately, she won't be able to do that anymore."

A GoFundMe page has been established to help create an anti-violence foundation in Lyden's memory.  For more information, you can CLICK HERE.
