    “Your words of kindness have made me realize that I was blessed for 11 years to have a true gift from God,” Shakera Moore, Askari's mother, wrote on a GoFundMe page.

    Counselors will be at an Edison, New Jersey, elementary school this week to help students deal with the sudden death of a fifth grader. 

    Askari Moore died Friday after he was hit by a car while skateboarding in a parking lot near his Edison home, according to a GoFundMe page set up by his family.

    Details surrounding the crash, including who was driving the car, weren't immediately known.

    Askari attended Lincoln Elementary School and grief counselors will be at the school Monday to help students deal with the boy’s loss.

    The GoFundMe page, which was set up to help bury Askari, had raised more than $17,000 by early Monday morning.

    “Your words of kindness have made me realize that I was blessed for 11 years to have a true gift from God,” Shakera Moore, Askari's mother, wrote on the GoFundMe page.

    Prosecutors said they’re investigating the crash and police said they’d have more information on Monday.
