Following her father’s death, in an interview with Good Morning America Gianna Floyd said she wants people to know, “I miss him.”

At a press event, Roxie Washington spoke about how the little kid will miss him growing up.“He will never see her grow up, graduate, he will never walk her down the aisle,” she continued. “If there’s a problem she’s having and she needs her dad, she does not have that anymore.”

“I’m here for my baby, and I’m here for George because I want justice for him. I want justice for him because he was good. No matter what anybody thinks, he was good,” she said, later adding that Floyd was a good father. “He loved her, he loved her so much.”
