“Jordyn left behind a 3-month-old who was her entire world. She was an incredible mother, and her son will never get to physically feel his mother’s love due to the cowardly acts of someone that was supposed to love her,” family members said on GoFundMe.

The baby is now being cared for by Griffey’s mother.

Griffey is set to be buried in Newnan on May 25.
