The death of a 9-year-old girl from Putnam County Florida has a family coming to grips with the devestating loss.

Kimora “Kimmie” Lynum was a healthy child with no pre-existing conditions that would make her susceptible to COVID-19, according to family spokesperson Dejeon Cain. But she died in mid-July 2020, making her the youngest child in the state to die of the virus since the start of the pandemic.

Family and friends alike say Kimmie was an outgoing little girl with an adorable smile.
