    A memorial for Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, a young Irvine couple who planned to be married on April 19 before being killed in a revenge plot.

    April 19 was the day that Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence had planned to get married.

    Last February, the newly engaged couple was killed by ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner.

    On Saturday, family and friends all across the country lit candles in honor of Quan, 28, and Lawrence, 27.

    Quan’s family held a memorial at the Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort, where the couple was scheduled to be married at 4 p.m. before 400 guests.

    Instead, they were shot in an Irvine condo parking structure on Feb. 3. Irvine police identified the killer as Dorner.

    Dorner killed four people while leading authorities on an 11-day manhunt. He died when he shot himself while he was surrounded by police as he was holed up in a mountain cabin.
