Funeral Services Held For 4 Year Old Shot And Killed

Posted: Updated:

Songs of worship filled the church Saturday morning as family and friends remembered the life of four year old Roderick Paige.

"Roderick was a very happy baby. He always smiled. Whenever he saw you he'd want to run up to you and hug you," said family member Rhonda Paige Patton.

Paige was killed Easter Sunday at a home in Gulf Village. The four year old accidentally shot and killed himself with a gun that was inside the home.

"We all had a chance to say goodbye to him. The last thing he did to his grandmother before he left the church that day was he hugged her and he kissed her and he told her that he loved her," said Patton.

Just hours before the tragedy family members say they were able to spend time with Roderick, moments that they'll cherish for the rest of their lives. 

The church was packed Saturday morning, some who attended had to stand during the service. Those who knew Roderick say he was loved by many and taken way too soon.
