(KMOV) -- Memorial Day has a special meaning this year in Kirkwood.

The city dedicated a memorial walkway in honor of the six who were killed in the Kirkwood city hall shooting. The walkway is located just north of city hall, and organizers say it is a good way to remember their friends and colleagues.

Two council members, two police officers and Kirkwood's public works director all died in the shooting. Mayor Mike Swoboda briefly recovered from his injuries, but died several months later from complications.
