Sarah Mancini's son, Keith, was on stage 10 years ago at The Station nightclub before the Great White concert.
Keith Mancini was a bass guitarist for the opening act.
"His music was really his world. It really was. And he was so excited that night. They really thought there would be some scouts in the audience and they were going to maybe be discovered," Sarah Mancini said.
Instead, a fire erupted and took Keith and 99 others.
"Ten years ago tonight we were waiting to hear who was here and wasn't. It took us five days. I knew he was gone, but it took us five days to find him and identify him," Sarah Mancini said.
But now, Sarah likes to stay positive.
"So, he's up in heaven, playing his guitar and having a good time," she said.
And she's especially upbeat about the permanent memorial that's now much closer to reality.
"Now, I can come here and know there's going to be a real super nice place to visit my son," Sarah Mancini said.
