Friends hold posthumous birthday party for murdered model

MILLINGTON, TN (WMC-TV) - Friends and family members gathered Saturday to remember murdered Bartlett model Lisa Davis on what would have been her thirtieth birthday.
Davis was killed last March. 
Friends said the past few months have been difficult. They said they wanted to set aside a special day to look past their pain and celebrate Lisa's life.

"I just wanted to take a day and be happy and celebrate the life she had," said best friend Shannon Lazek. "The past four months have been hard. Everytime I look at a picture, I try not to cry."
Everyone who attended the party was asked to bring a toy to be donated to Victory to Victory, an organization that helps family members of homicide victims.
