DEWITT, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Two years ago Kristopher Hicks and Stephen Gudknecht were finishing their last shift at Chili’s on Erie Boulevard when a gunman killed them.

Their families are taking Tuesday night to remember their lives by raising a toast.

We’re really excited for tonight. I think it’s going to be wonderful. Yesterday was like a brick hit me emotionally. It’s been really tough and stressful with the anniversary date. The emotions are just going crazy.
