Community holds candlelight vigil in remembrance of Raynard Daniels

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Monday night everyone who came out to Raynard Daniels vigil, lit a candle, reflecting on what they remembered about Daniels, the 19 year old who was murdered in Gwinnett County last month.

"This candle means peace, it represents my brother time here on earth, the 19 years that we did have him I thank the Lord for that," said Yolanda Daniels, Ray nard's sister.  

"This candle means a lot to me because Raynard was my youngest brother, we always fought, but at the end of the day we always made up," said Emmanuel Daniels, Ray nard's brother.  

At Monday night's vigil, people who knew Raynard spoke about the man they loved.  

"We can't be down our whole life, even though it's a loss, we can't be down our whole life, we can't take this out our whole life."  

Kim Daniels is one of Ray nard's sisters. She has nothing but fun filled memories of the brother she loved so dearly.  

"He was fun, he was very joyful, he loved music, love to cook, he had a great spirit," said Kim Daniels, Ray nard's sister.  

Kim says the ordeal of losing her brother has been tough on her and her relatives, and she doesn't wish this pain on any family.  

"Gun violence, it is terrible, and I wouldn't wish this on anyone, because it's a lot of heartbreak," said Daniels.  

Just last week, the man suspected of killing her brother was finally captured in New Orleans. 33 year-old Robert Bell spent six weeks on the run. Kim Daniels says the family is hoping justice will prevail.  

"I wish him the best I just want justice, our family wants justice for him, he got his day coming," said Daniels.
