In the terrible fire that claimed nine lives in Charleston Saturday morning, so many young child were killed. In fact, only two of them were old enough to go to school.
Today grief counselors were on hand at Shoals Elementary where 8-year-old Keahna Camp and her younger brother, 7-year-old BJ, also known as Timothy, went to school. The principal says their deaths have taken a big toll on the entire school and they will support one another to make it through the difficult time.
Fellow students remembered their lost classmates by writing them notes and drawing them pictures.
BJ was a first grader. The principal says one of BJ's last drawings was a happy one of his family at his mother's birthday party. The family did get together to celebrate her birthday Friday night before the fatal fire.
Keahna was in the second grade. Her teacher says she loved to read and was a wonderful student and that she always thought Keahna would grow up to achieve great things because she loved to learn.
The school is collecting money to help pay for the students' funerals. The principal has asked every principal, teacher and student in Kanawha County to donate $1 to be used for the funeral expenses.
