Friends and family are remembering a little girl who died two years ago when she was hit by a motorcycle in front of her home on Dinkins Street in New Orleans East.

Thursday afternoon, friends and family recalled fond memories of little Asia Williams.

According to police, a motorcyclist was leveling off his bike after popping a wheelie when Williams was hit.

While Thursday afternoon’s event was all about celebrating Williams’ life, her friends and family members say the pain is still there.

“The same thing I felt two years ago.  I’m not over it.  It still hurts.  It’s hard to talk about it.  My baby is in an urn.  She’s not here to celebrate nothing with us,” said Geron Jones, Asia’s mother, while holding a container of the girl’s ashes.

Police arrested the driver of the motorcycle and booked him with manslaughter, but the charge was later reduced to felony hit and run.
