KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One month after a Kansas City father crashed his car after being shot to death, family members remembered their loved one on Thursday night. Thomas Jones' relatives held a prayer vigil near Blue Parkway and Kensington, the area where he lost his life.

Jones' mom says her son crashed his car after getting shot with an AK-47. During the prayer vigil---family members especially comforted Jones' mother and five kids. His 18-year-old daughter says her dad was a strong family man who loved to cook and dreamed of starting his own restaurant one day.

"Never made me feel less than a person. Always made me feel gorgeous and I miss him. I love him," said daughter Marquasha Grant.

"I just want to know who done this and I just need some closure. I don't want to see no more mamas going through what I'm going through and I wish the violence wold just cease fire," said Jones' mom, Debra Mims.
