It's been one week since a woman and her two young children were killed in an apartment fire in Baltimore County.

Friends gathered on Sunday to play soccer, remember the family, and to raise money for a memorial service.

This was at the Drumcastle Apartments in the Hillendale area of Baltimore County

Alexandra was on an intramural team called "Baltimore Soccer Forever" which includes a lot of people who have immigrated from parts of Africa to the Baltimore area.

The group is now raising money to hold a memorial service here, before the bodies of Mcray and her children are flown back to the ivory coast, where Alexandra is originally from.
