I send my condolences to Zaria’s family. Death is a hard concept to grasp and accept. I pray for your strength at this time. The healing process will be slow, but with God you will heal. I’m a mother and can only imagine the feeling and disbelief you’re feeling right now. I’m so sorry this happened and wish I had enough words to speak to give you comfort. Keep believing and trusting in God. May the spirit of the Lord be with you and keep you.

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.
