JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Albermarle Road in Jackson was lined with cars Thursday as people came to pay their respects at Kingston Frazier's visitation. May 18, the 6-year-old was kidnapped from a Kroger. He was later found shot and killed in Gluckstadt.

"Don't no little child need to die like that," said Jermaine Taylor, who came to Kingston's viewing ceremony Thursday.

From 3 in the afternoon to 7 in the evening, hundreds of people gathered at Morning Star Baptist Church to pay their respects to little Kingston Frazier.

"He should've grew up, had a wonderful life," added Taylor. "That was very, very terrible thing that happened to him."

Cars lined the street outside the church; friends, family, even strangers.

"I didn't know him, but just hearing the story, my heart just went out to Kingston Frazier and his family," said Bridget Harris, who came to the ceremony despite not having met Kingston before. "I just want to let them know that the community supports them."

Keisha Wells says she's known Kingston's mother, Ebony Archie, for 13 years, and that her kids grew up with Ebony's. She says Kingston was a bright, happy boy.

"He got it from his mother," said Wells. "Because she kept a smile on hers, yes she did. She loves to smile, every time I see her, she had a smile on her face. "

Everyone we spoke with today, we asked the same question: Is there anything you would want Kingston's family to know?

"Take it from me, God will protect," said Harris.

"I'll just be praying for them, through this very grieving time," said Taylor.

"We're here for you," said Wells. "If you need anything, just reach out to me, and I'll be there."

The celebration of life for Kingston Frazier is tomorrow at noon, also at Morning Star Baptist Church. The family has asked that you not bring in cell phones, out of respect for Kingston.
