Sky Lemmons-Dixon was a kind, funny, and humble friend who was a beam of light to everyone around her.

Tragically, Sky was shot while she was home alone on Christmas morning by someone in connection to her domestically abusive ex-boyfriend, whom she was supposed to stand as a witness against. She passed away the morning of January 2nd in the hospital.
