Fifth Child Lost in Harris Daycare Fire Will Have His Own Funeral
Karina Facchiano, mother of 2-year-old Dalvin Pacely, has decided to have a separate funeral for her little boy.
She had considered joining in the funeral plans for the four other children who died in the fire but decided against that.
The children from the Overton and Jones families will be remembered in a funeral service this Saturday at the Bayfront Convention Center at noon. Public viewing hours will take place before the funeral from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
"I wanted my little boy to have his own funeral," Facchiano said.
Dalvin Pacely was the last child to succumb to his injuries after he was trapped in the upstairs bedroom area during the daycare house fire last Sunday.
Calling hours for Dalvin are set for Monday August 19 at Burton Funeral Home on West 10th Street from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
The funeral service is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Tuesday Second Baptist Church at 757 East 26th Street. There will be public viewing from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service. Pastor Harry Euell of Faith Temple Ministries will officiate.
