Many people are still mourning the shocking passing of 4-year-old Maleah Davis. Sylvester Turner, the Mayor of Houston, is, however, honoring Maleah in a major way.
According to Fox 26, the city issued a proclamation that officially declares June 9th as “Maleah Davis Day “ in the city of Houston.
In celebration of her life, City Hall will also turn the lights pink in her honor and a walk has been organized near the area for Sunday. Those who will be participating are also asked to wear her favorite color or a shirt with her face on it.
Mayor Sylvester said in a statement:
“The City of Houston is dedicated to maintaining an environment where our youth can enjoy a childhood filled with heart-warming memories and growing experiences, yet tragically, Maleah Davis was taken much too soon.
Although the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and death of Maleah Davis were heartbreaking, the community is united in creating lasting changes in her honor and vowing to safeguard all children in our community. Amongst calls for justice, may those who knew and loved her all find peace and comfort during these trying times.
On June 9th, 2019 the lights of City Hall will be turned pink, which was Maleah Davis’ favorite color, as family, friends and the Houston community gather in remembrance for a very a sweet, beautiful and innocent little girl.
The City of Houston is honored to join the family and friends of Maleah Davis, as well as the community, in remembering her and extends sincere condolences on this day of remembrance, as her life and her beautiful spirit will never be forgotten.
Therefore, I, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the City of Houston, hereby proclaim June 9, 2019, as Maleah Davis Day in Houston, Texas.”
As we previously reported, earlier this week human remains found in Arkansas were officially confirmed to be Maleah.
We continue to send our deepest condolences to Maleah’s loved ones.
