Seven-year-old James Caldwell and his 6x-year-old cousin died last week when a wall of dirt collapsed, burying the two in a pit. Caldwell was adopted by his maternal grandparents, but his mother and many relatives still live here.
Caldwell's cousin, Chiquita Harris, said, "These kids need to be able to come home to Buffalo to their family. The people who have been ignored and relied on and that love them."
