Tricia Todd's family is forced to wait a little longer for closure - as the search for her remains continues.

Tricia’s brother Joshua Todd told us Friday it's still almost too horrible to believe.

“I never imagined something like this would happen around me,” he says. “It’s just it happened like that.”

Joshua is reflecting on the kind of person Tricia was.

“She just wanted to serve people,” Joshua says. “She was just real loving.”

He’s also celebrating the good mother he says she always strived to be to her daughter Faith.

“That was all that she was interested in - being around her daughter as much as possible,” he says. “She takes her out on picnics. She was always going out with the daughter, hanging out with the daughter. Her daughter was like, her world.”

The loss hits hard for many in Tricia's neighborhood - including Jeff Crable.

“It’s hard to believe that somebody would actually do that to a human life with a two year old little baby,” he says.

Crable lived next door to Tricia.

He says though he didn’t know her well, he’ll never forget her.

“She was joyful, always smiling, played with her kid, got up every morning and went to work.”

Tricia's brother, meanwhile, is picking up the pieces - saying all the focus now is on Tricia's young daughter.

“Now moving forward we've got a 2 year old girl that needs love and parents - and she doesn't have either parent,” Joshua says.

“I think that we just try to move forward from here and take care of the daughter.”

Many of you have been asking how you can help that daughter.

The family has set up a fundraiser.
