PALM COAST, Fla. -

It's been five days since Teysha Silva and her five siblings lost their mother.

"Just her touch is, you know, like her hugs, her kisses, you know, makes you feel warm," Silva said. "And your mother's love -- nobody's going to give kisses like my mom. Nobody's going to give hugs like my mom."

The 16-year-old left a note on the counter at Mobil Mart, where her mom was killed, thanking the community for their support.

Zuheily Rosado's co-workers set up a memorial at the gas station to collect donations for her funeral and her kids.

"It's sad because she was my best friend," one of Rosado's co-workers said. "I can't believe this is happening. I can't believe it. Still in shock."

Silva said she's not sure how she and her siblings are going to go on without their mother.

"It's going to be hard. It's going to be rough for my grandma to like, you know, shoes, clothes, whatever," Silva said. "But I know we can do it."

"They were limited source of income to begin with with mom taking care of six kids," Flagler County Lt. Bob Weber said. "And the funeral costs that are associated with it has only made that lifestyle more tragic."

Silva just wishes she had known when she got home from school last Thursday that would be the last time she would ever see her mom.

"I thought she was coming back home that night. She never came home, and that's what hurts. Because I could have given her a hug when I came from school, and I didn't. I went straight to do homework and do my everyday things. I didn't get to give her a hug and a kiss. I now I have to see her in a casket. She can't hug me back. She can't kiss me back. She's gone."

Investigators on Monday released surveillance video and photos of the man who shot and killed Rosado.

Deputies describe the killer as a light-skinned man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing blue jean pants and a dark T-shirt.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call Flagler County Sheriff's Office Detective Mark Moy at 386-586-4801 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS.
