Portland, Ore. - Kyron Horman'sfathertold KGWthere will be no big event to mark the one-year anniversary of his son'sdisappearance.

There is no day that is more or less important to me. They are all equally as important until he gets home, said Kaine Horman.

In a lengthy interview with KGW,Kaine Horman said he has relied on a group of friends for support during the past year.

Some days are tougher than others, said Horman. Nothing has been harder than Christmas. Just having an empty house for the first time, pretty much ever, that was tough.

The missing boys father says he is grateful for the hundreds of hugs, emails and letters of support that he's received over the past 11 months.

The Wall of Hope, set up outside a fire station on Skyline Boulevard, includes a collection of signs, banners and stuffed animals for Kyron.

Recently, Kaine Horman asked that a plastic covering be removed from the wall. It was intended to protect the keepsakes.

Horman felt it was a barrier. He wanted people to interact with the wall and share their thoughts.

It s kind of a living, breathing thing, just like he is, Horman said. It s going to continue to grow and things about it are going to continue to change.

Kyron Horman was last seenat Skyline Elementary school on June 4, 2010. No suspects have been officially named in the case but the investigation has focused on Kyron's step-mom, Terri Moulton Horman.
