Thank you so much, Rachel.

Here's ABC's Eva pilgrim. What do you want people to know? I miss him. Reporter: George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter Gianna talking about her dad. What was your dad like? He played with me. She didn't have to play with nobody else, because dad was going to play with her all day long. Reporter: Her mother said that George loved his daughter, he always a great dad. I mean that was his baby. He loved his little girl. Reporter: Roxie found out about George's death when she got a phone call, she got on the internet and saw the video. I watched it only for a moment. Because I was like, I can't believe -- I couldn't believe that somebody was doing him like I wish I could have been there to help him. How did you explain what happened to your daughter? Reporter: But Gianna knew something was wrong. Excuse me. She doesn't know what happened. I told her that her dad died because he couldn't breathe. Reporter: As for little Gianna she may not know exactly what happened to her father, but she does know that everyone is talking about her dad. Daddy changed the world. Reporter: At 6 years old, all she has left of her dad are memories -- this baby book part of the documentation of her father's love, daddy stayed every night. I know what I want to be when I grow up.
