In a Facebook post, Malone suggests honoring 11-year-old Bridgette by making art, 10-year-old Amelia by speaking out against injustice and 3-year-old twins Amanda and Zoe by solving a problem. She says people can remember 2-year-old Billy by being helpful and nearly 9-month-old Daniel by smiling and laughing.

Malone says don't forget her surviving 8-year-old daughter Erin, "a spunky super brave little soul" who got her mother and siblings Jack and Jane, aged 4 and 5, out of the house.
