‘The most perfect girl I could ever ask for’: Father of Columbia girl killed thanks community for support [video] | Local News |

The father of the 12-year-old Columbia girl who was found killed in a freezer Friday morning released a video statement asking people who knew her to share letters and memories to give back to the community. 

Dwayne Smith uploaded a video on his YouTube channel Wednesday morning making promises to his daughter Elaina and sharing memories of her. He said in the video that Elaina had so much of her life planned out, from the car she wanted to get when she was older, to what decorations and music she wanted at her sweet 16 birthday party. She also wanted to go to Millersville University like her aunt, Sheriece Smith and study to become a veterinary. 

Funeral Arrangements
Elaina Smith's memorial service is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, at Lampeter United Methodist Church, where Elaina's grandfather, John G. Smith, serves as head pastor.

Elaina's father Dwayne Smith said the funeral is open to the public.

He asked the community to send letters with memories or compliments for Elaina, where her younger brother would hold on to them and the family could open them over time. He asked letters and donations to be sent to 1390 Columbia Ave, Suite 119, Lancaster, PA, 17603.
