MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Time has done little to ease the pain for the Savage family whose 15-year-old daughter was killed 2 years ago.   Nia Savage was murdered on Crenshaw Street by another teen with a stolen gun.  

Pastor Willie Savage and Lady Antoinette Savage led a service The God of Another Chance Ministry tonight to honor their daughter.

Antoinette says, “I remember the time, down to the second, when she let go of my hand.  I could see the spirit leave her body.”

Her father looks back fondly but with pain.  “I try to focus on the good times, being a human, there’s a sadness, a hurt it will always be there.”

Their daughter’s life could have been spared if the person who and killed her didn’t have access to a stolen gun.  Willie says, “The people who leave guns in their car.  They should know better and there should be type of punishment for leaving your gun in the vehicle.”

While Savages will continue to uplift their parish and community, they will never stop preaching gun safety.

“If that gun had been secured, there’s a good chance our daughter would be here today.”
