"What are his kids supposed to do?!" said Shantae Mason through sobs, as raw, unfettered grief weaved its way between hugs and laughs. Hundreds clad in Mason's brother Jonte Davis' favorite color, green, gathered to remember him Thursday.

"It just goes to show the reflection of him and what a great guy he was and how loved he was," said Ashley Cobb, another of Davis' sisters.

It's not even been a week since Davis' murder.
Not even enough time for his sisters to fully grasp the new reality they must bear from now on.

"Trying our best to, but...it was an unjust crime. He didn't deserve this and now our protector is gone."

Someone shot and killed Davis last Saturday on his mail route.
While police have questioned several people, there are no suspects, no arrests.
As a meeting to discuss ways to tamp down violent crime took place across town from Thursday's vigil, Warren mayor Doug Franklin said the time for talking is long past.

"Where do we start?" our Chris Cerenelli asked Franklin. He replied "We start with these young people...and we start with also teaching them in, you have to start in the home>

But for Jonte Davis' family, a solution will come tragically too late, now left clinging to any fleeting comfort they can find.

"I want to thank the man who sat there and held my brother's hand," said sister Destiny Cobb. "It made me feel some type of better that he didn't leave alone."
