COLTON – A “Blue Mass” at San Salvador Catholic Church, 178 W. K St., on Monday evening also was a memorial for Mayor David Zamora, who died last week after suffering a heart attack while driving.

A Blue Mass is a celebration, not only of law- enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, but also of those who continue to risk their lives to protect others.

It was the first time a Blue Mass was held in the city. Zamora had been scheduled to speak during the ceremony. About 150 people attended.

Services for Colton Mayor David Zamora are scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at Colton First Assembly of God Church, 450 W. Citrus St.
