Remembering Semaj: Funeral for toddler ‘just heartbreaking’
Four men in long black coats carried the white-and-pink casket that bore Semaj Crosby to her funeral.
The casket was so small that one of them would have been able to carry it alone.
Shortly thereafter, dozens of mourners came to Prayer Tower Ministries in Joliet Friday, filing past Semaj, wearing a pink dress and a silver tiara. The word “Princess” was written on the inside of the casket lid in purple letters.
“We have a child that has gone away,” Pastor Warren C. Dorris Jr. told reporters Friday before the service. “We want justice, but we’re here today to give comfort to this family.”
