BOERNE, Texas - A prayer vigil will take place Wednesday for two Kendall County Sheriff's Office deputies who died within the same week, the Kendall County Sheriff's Office said on its Facebook page.

Deputy Carlos Ramirez and Sgt. Matthew Johnson will be celebrated at 7 p.m. at Veterans Plaza in the 800 block of South Main Street in Boerne.

Ramirez died in the line of duty last Tuesday after he was struck by a passing pickup truck during a traffic stop off of I-10. Three days later, Johnson died following a battle with stage four colon cancer.

The vigil will be hosted by Angels All Around You Military Ministry and will allow the community to come together and pray for the deputies and their families.
