Akisha, You probably do not remember me, my son JJ worked for you when you managed Kangaroo express. We can not imagine your pain, anguish, and your feeling like you have fallen into an altered universe; hoping reality will come back into view. My heart broke in half, when i was told this was your baby girl. We are praying that God's comfort comes to you on swift wings, bringing Zaria's laughter and sweetness often in your dreams. While I know, it is little to comfort you, know, that the entire greater Charlotte area that knows of your senseless grief and pain, are praying for the entire family as you endure the unbelievably painful days ahead. Praying until -- Rae and Ron James.

Never in a million years did I think I'd be attending your funeral. I was looking forward to your 16th birthday and your graduation. Just like I attended your 5th grade graduation. We had so much fun that day. Hair and make up. Your mom just shook her head lol. I'm glad I had the opportunity to live with you. To get you ready for school when your mom had to work. Sleepovers in my room. You taking my clothes and telling me we had to wear
pink lol. Bet you didnt know your diaper was the first birthday ever changed. R.I.P pretty girl love Jess.
