James, and our family as we all figure out how to grieve her loss and try to figure out how to go on from here. [The 5-year-old girl] has grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and a dad that all loved her de’ar’ly and never thought such
event would happen to such an innocent kid. She will always hold a special place in all of our he’art’s. We will always remember her as the sweetest little girl who never en*ou’nt a s’tranger. She was so full of love and smiles and her bright blue eyes shined so full of cur’iosi’ty.
We are hoping and praying for v’er’dic’t will be served and the hea’rtless m’on’ster who took our sweet girl away from us pay for the inn’ocent life she took.”
