Frank Dixon of Macon Peacekeepers has organized a memorial for Shar'bora Daniels, the Central High graduate that was killed when a bullet fired from outside her father's house, went through a wall striking her in the head.
Dixon said when he heard Shar'bora's story, he knew that he had to help because he understands that lost. His daughter Ja'Nya died from a brain tumor three years ago.
"Every time you see a young girl smile, you think of your daughter, every time you see a lady being a lady she should be you think of that's the child that you imagine your daughter being so it's just a hole that will never be filled," said Dixon.
Dixon put together a candlelight vigil for the family a few days after Shar'bora's death.
The Daniels family said, though they didn't know Dixon before, they are glad for his support.
"After the funeral the cars coming by and things stop, he still been coming by and has been a great friend," said Alfred Daniels, Shar'bora's father. "You feel like you're the only one, you know like you have been picked on for a purpose or something, it's just glad to see somebody understand."
Dixon will present a plaque to the Daniels family at Macon City Hall at 5PM, Thursday. He said everyone is invited, especially parents who have lost a child.
Dixon said he's also trying to get a memorial set-up at Central High School, pending the Board of Education's approval.
Donations to the burial fund can be made at Mid-South Federal Credit Union in the name of "Shy Daniels Burial Fund".
