TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A vigil is being held Thursday night in Naco, AZ in honor of fallen Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie. Tucson News Now's Matt Mendes will have live reports on KOLD News 13 and Fox 11. 

The vigil will include a candlelight procession to the border wall. It will start at 6 p.m. at the St. Michael's Catholic Church. 

Funeral arrangement plans have also been released. Time of Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7 at Hatfield Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 2100 Yaqui St., Sierra Vista. Interment will follow at a later date in the Spanish Fork City Cemetery, Spanish Fork, Utah.

Janet Napolitano, secretary of homeland security, is traveling to Arizona Friday to express her condolences to the Ivie family.

She will be joined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Deputy Commissioner David V. Aguilar and CBP Commander of Arizona Joint Field Command Jeffrey Self.

They will also travel to the border patrol station where Ivie was assigned, to discuss the investigation. 

The Ivie family held a press conference today at 10 a.m. in Sierra Vista. This was the first time the family spoke publicly since his death.

Ivie was shot and killed early Tuesday morning near Bisbee. 

Nicholas Ivie was the youngest in a family of four boys and one girl. Nick's brothers say he always wanted to be in law enforcement and a 2-year mission trip to Mexico as a teen added to his love of the area. 

They say the community support has been overwhelming "in a good way". About 30 immediate family members flew out to support Nicholas' wife, Christy, and his two young girls, ages 4 and 20 months.

His brothers, Chris and Rick, say he was always playing outside with his children and that it is difficult "when they ask for their Dad." 

Nicholas' brother, Joel, has been in the border patrol since 2003. He did not speak at the conference due to the ongoing investigation.
