Maleka Jackson and her husband were on their 15th wedding anniversary trip to the Bahamas last weekend when tragedy struck.
An American tourist is dead and nine others are injured after a boating incident off the coast of Barraterre in the Bahamas.
It's not clear what caused the boat to burst into flames. At least one person from the boat was pulled to safety.
The U.S. Coast Guard was called and launched a plane with medical personnel to Exuma and airlifted four injured boaters to a hospital in Florida.
Stacey Schaffer and her daughter Stefanie were among 10 American tourists and two Bahamians who were on the boat when the explosion occurred.
"She was an incredible mother, an awesome daughter", relatives attending the vigil said to the crowd. Grimes said Jackson's son has learned of her death and understands the "eternal place of his mom".

Stefanie Schaffer, her mother, Stacey Bender, her sister, Brooke, and her father-in-law, Paul Bender, were in the Bahamas on vacation last week.
"The scary thing is Stefanie doesn't know that she's lost her legs, and that's what really upsets me", the relative said, according to the Daily Mail.
Ms Schaffer was sitting right above the location of the blast and is also in a critical condition, her uncle told NBC News.
Another passenger, 22-year-old Stefanie Schaffer, was severely injured in the explosion, leading to a double leg amputation. "We are saddened and our hearts are hurting, but we will get through this together", Cooper wrote on Facebook.
The Rutland Herald reports she also suffered two broken arms, a fractured spine and internal injuries. She's going into her senior year at Castleton University, planned to do an internship and graduate in December.
