On March 22, 2104, reports said the Spring sky was a little bit cloudy, but not to those who were looking up at 3:56 p.m. and would have seen pink an purple balloons that had been released to honor Kilah's memory. Messages and wishes going to Kilah were written on some of the balloons

Kilah's family had asked people to come and celebrate her life:

"Funerals homes are for old people:
Leslie Davenport

Several hundred people came out to celebrate the life of this precious little Angel including members of motorcycle clubs who had been on memorial rides to help raise money for child abuse awareness. Kilah had loved to dance and be happy and that's what Leslie and other family members wanted her memorial to be about.

Sitting in lawn chairs with coolers, people sat on the hill while Hula Hoops were passed out so people could swing and dance to the music of Darrell Harwood singing "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)", Kilah's favorite song. A pink and lavender dress was displayed, a dress that Kilah was going to wear as a special guest at a prom for disable youth:

"She was going to be a princess. We took her a crown"
Donna Franklin - Family Friend
