Few people really knew her-- still hundreds packed the church.

"I still look for her to come through the front door,” said Maria Moore.

Those who knew her best have had a little more than a week to try and process their pain.

"I don't hate the people that did it,” said Moore. “I don't."

Memories are all Moore can cling to. Her aunt, Dannaer Fields had her life summed up in a program Saturday.
Fields and four others became victims on Good Friday, so did an entire city.

"The healing has got to start, and start now," said City Counselor, Jack Henderson.

"It has impacted me more than anybody could ever really imagine," said Jake England.

England and Alvin Watts confessed to killing Fields, as well as Bobby Clark and William Allen. Two others lived through the random crossfire.

"Before I knew it, they started shooting, all I heard was gun shots," said shooting victim, Deon Tucker.

Tucker took a bullet to the chest-- just a centimeter from his heart. England said he pulled the trigger out of anger, because a black man killed his father, so he opened fire on random black people walking the streets.

"That boy has a baby, and some day he's going to have to explain that to his son," said Moore.

No one knows how long that wound will take to heal, if ever.

"In about 5 to 6 seconds it was over with," said Tucker.

And just like that-- the only thing left to say here-- is goodbye.

Tuesday, services will be held for William Allen at World Won Family Outreach Ministries.
England and Watts are scheduled to be in court on Monday to be arraigned.
