CARTERSVILLE, Ga. -- People in Bartow County came together Sunday for the "Journey Ann Cowart" foundation.
Journey was barely a year old when she died last month. Police say she died from abuse at the hands of her mother, Brandy Boyd, and Boyd's boyfriend, Austin Levi Payne.
Journey's great-grandmother says the community's support during such a difficult time means the world to her family.
According to the

The Bartow County Medical Examiner called the little girl's death the worst case of child abuse he'd ever seen, according to Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap.
