Pastor Evan Majors told Channel 2 Action News his daughter’s death tested his faith.

“She was my guardian angel,” the pastor told the news station. “God is the only thing that's helping me get through it, even though I was so angry with Him.”

Majors’ son survived with a light concussion and whiplash, he told Channel 2.

The family said on GoFundMe that Ren’gia was a bright girl who maintained an A average in all of her classes. 

“She will always have a beautiful smile that will always be remembered and a beautiful spirit,” the family said on the fundraising website. 

They didn’t have life insurance for the girl and hope to raise $25,000. By Monday afternoon, the campaign had raised more than $8,000.
