"When I see this? I wish we wouldn't have to do this," said Martin Archie, Kingston's uncle. "Because he wouldn't hurting or harming anybody,"

A candlelight vigil and balloon release brought family together after a brutal crime tore it apart.

"Thank you for the love," said Ebony Archie, the slain boy's mother. "All the love, that's the only thing holding me on. All the love."

"This is a platform, or a place for us to come and kind of comfort one another, because it hit our family hard, as well as the community," said Brittaney McGriggs, Kingston's first cousin.

The boy's family says he never stopped smiling.

"He was always happy!" exclaimed Christina Toins, another first cousin. "And I really think he was just an angel here on Earth."

"Kingston was just a unique kid," added Martin Archie. "Everybody loved and liked Kingston. No matter where he went, he always fit in."

Family and friends gathered to support one another, and celebrate six years they did get to spend with that bright, happy little boy.

"It's okay to grieve, but also it's okay to know that he's in a better place," explained McGriggs.

The family voiced a powerful prayer, and consoled the grieving mom.

"We all make mistakes, but I promise you - I promise you, this is not your fault," said a family member leading the prayer.

We have not received word on funeral arrangements for Kingston.
