ORANGE PARK, Fla.-- The love for murdered mother, Jillian Berrios continues to burn bright, as hope for finding her killer dims.

"It's frustrating it's irritating that nothing has come about yet," said Berrios's friend Beatrize Mejias.

It's been nearly two months since police say Berrios was shot outside an Orange Park apartment complex and weeks since police released footage of men in a red Chevy Aveo they believe could be responsible.

"Think of that: you have a 4- and an 8-year old. They need closure. They still don't understand why this happened," said Mejias.

Berrios's children have suffered the most, as they prepare to ring in the holidays without their mom.

"It's a big void," said Mejias. "She was always with my family for the holidays, and even Thanksgiving this year we kept looking toward the door just waiting for her to walk in and it never happened so it's hard," she said.

Instead, friends and family created a Christmas memorial.

"We needed a place to be able to come to just be able to remember her and feel her," said Mejias.

This family's Christmas list is short: All they want is justice for Jillian.

"It's for her kids," said Mejias.

The reward for information that leads to an arrest is now up to $3,000. If you have any information, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-845-8477
