Meet Josiya Sincere Moffett Family

His mother, Natisha Moffett was a 35-year-old cosmetologist from Grand Rapids. She moved to Arizona after her friend convinced her to practice cosmetology.

Besides Josiya, her other children were Giovanni Thomas-Blakney, 16, Santari Witherspoon, 16, Malik Thomas-Blakney Jr., 8, and Makayla Thomas Blakney, 5.
Josiya’s youngest sister Makayla had just finished pre-kindergarten.
His grandfather, Ynes Morrow, described his daughter Natisha as a beautiful person inside and out.
Satin Abernathy, his sister, said it’s unreal. They were traveling to celebrate the 4th of July and for it to end like that was anti-climatic. She requested others to love one’s family, kids, and spouses while they’re still with you.
His father was still in shock and said he was already missing his family.
The family started a GoFundMe page to raise money for their funeral. They raised $89,781 for the funeral.
