A Christmas tree honoring crime victims in Dallas County is out of space.

Each passing year brings more victims, and that means more ornaments for the Tree of Angels.

"We will make space for them," victim's advocate Sue Bragg said.

The Crime Victims Council of Dallas County is setting up more trees to make room for the hundreds of ornaments that won't fit on the main tree at the Cliff Temple Baptist Church.

Sue Kelly is helping hang angels on a tree inside Dallas police headquarters.

"This is the time we can come together and be sad, but also rejoice knowing we have angels and we are honoring them," she said.
