Livia Robinson

Age 3

Huntsville, Alabama

Sweet Livia’s smile ended while sleeping

In the photo, she tilts her head up to the sky, eyes squinting with a huge grin spread across her face. She shows off all her teeth, a brilliant white smile.

Her family affectionately called her “Sweet Livia.” They remember her as a cute, happy baby. She smiled often and liked to ask everyone how their day was going. Her aunt said she was “somebody you could really love.”

On March 7, 2018, 3-year-old Livia Robinson was sleeping peacefully in an apartment when she was killed in a drive-by shooting in Huntsville, Alabama.
