It seems as though the weather matched the emotions expressed at Warner Robins CME Church Monday morning.
Family members packed the church to mourn the death of 8-year-old Jai'Mel Anderson.
"I know it's a hard time for us, but we is a family and we try to pray and stay together as a family," said Anderson's cousin David Williams.
He says he understands how the child's parents are feeling.
"I have a son. And he's a young guy, and it would tear my heart apart to see my son die a senseless death," Williams said.
A program from a family member, shows Anderson's smiling face during happier times.
"He was a sweet child. Beautiful little child. He played football with my grandbaby," said Mary Sanders, a distant relative.
She says Jai'Mel's death is difficult to understand.
