Elementary School in Palmdale held a memorial Wednesday for 8 year old Gabriel
Fernandez. He's the little boy who was abused and beaten to death. His mother and her boyfriend are awaiting trial
for his death.
It was his first grade teacher who wanted the
memorial, in part because no one was
invited to his funeral. Jen Garcia also felt her students, Gabriel's
classmates, needed something to help process the loss. She's had to answer some
tough questions frome her young charges. How could a mother hurt her child or
ket someone else hurt him.
