On Tuesday, Amerie Jo Garza’s family is asking people to wear lilac or lavender — her favorite color. A few days later, Makenna Lee Elrod’s family is asking friends and family to wear purple, their 10-year-old’s favorite color.

The two 10-year-olds were among the 21 victims of a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas last week.

All 21 fatalities took place in the same 4th-grade classroom at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Lt. Chris Olivarez, spokesperson for the Texas Department for Public Safety, told CNN.

Multiple GoFundMe fundraisers have been raising money for the families of the 19 children and two teachers.

“She was so smart and such a good child,” the GoFundMe for Garza states. “Amerie is known for being a hero and trying to call 911 before the shooter took her life.”

She had just turned 10 on May 10, according to the GoFundMe. And received an award for honor roll the day of the shooting.

“My little love is now flying high with the angels above,” Angel Garza wrote about his daughter. “Please don’t take a second for granted. Hug your family. Tell them you love them. I love you Amerie jo. Watch over your baby brother for me.”

On Wednesday, Garza posted two more photos of his daughter.

“I will never be happy or complete again,” he said.
