It will be a tough Thanksgiving for one Southern Kentucky family, after a tragic accident takes the life of a 9-year-old girl. Ambria Dunn died Tuesday after police say she was shot by her 12-year-old brother.

Wednesday, her family had the difficult task of getting ready for the holiday while also planning her funeral.

While the ham and turkey cook, Bonnie Dunn throws in a pizza in the oven, her granddaughter, Ambria's, favorite food.

But Ambria won't be joining her family for pizza nor Thanksgiving. While the police tape still remains at the home, the family says this tragedy won't stop Thanksgiving.

The tight-knit family, with Ambria's 11 aunts and uncles on her dad's side alone, band together during this time of grief and thanks, with an empty seat left for Ambria.
