According to her grandaunt, Lorna Davidson, seven-year-old Bianca 'Heaven' Spence wanted to become a nurse.

She said Bianca, who attended Rousseau Primary School, catered to the needs of her relatives, especially her uncle Heron Davidson who uses a wheelchair.

"Me deh here in a me wheelchair and she always come and see to it that me get water. 'Uncle' you want water?' Same way she say it," Davidson said, tears streaming down his cheeks. "Me miss her man, she always come mop out my room and make sure it clean. All when a weekend time, because she know say me dust down the dresser and ting, she help me and fix it up back. I don't know what happen, but it shake me up."

Bianca's body was found on Saturday morning, lying on the floor with what appeared to be a stab wound to her chest at her home on Omara Road in St Andrew.

She was rushed to the hospital by relatives where she died while being treated. The Hunt's Bay police are investigating.

Lorna, with whom Bianca lived since she was three years old, said no task was too difficult for her to tackle.

"She was very helpful. She would a wipe the floor from morning until night. The place all wet sometimes, you can't even come in. You have to stand up and wait until it dry. The way how she wet it up say she a wipe, but because she can't squeeze the mop dry, a bare water," she said. "All the little babies them. As a time for them to bathe she go set them water."

Lorna also told THE STAR that Bianca was a social butterfly. As the 60-year-old reminisced on the precious memories, she fought to hold back her tears.

"Is like everything me do, me just a say if heaven did deh here she would a do this, me can't get her out of my mind," she said.

Yesterday, Education Minister Fayval Williams, accompanied by State Minister Robert Nesta Morgan and other senior ministry officers, visited the family.
