TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Loved ones are speaking out about a woman who died in a Tuscaloosa wreck New Year's Day.

Evelyn Page, 45, and Shakevia Washington, 20, were killed when a vehicle driven by KiAnthony Davis, 22, slammed into their car at 15th Street an McFarland Boulevard in the wee hours of New Year's Day.

Authorities say that excessive speed and alcohol were factors in the accident. Davis is now in jail, charged with the two womens' deaths. Authorities say the victims and Davis knew each other.

But Thursday, Page's family is remembering the good times they shared with her and they have a message for Davis.

"Even if you needed the shirt off her back, she would give it to you before you could even ask for it," Page's niece, Destiney Page, said.

The family says Page loved to sing about her blessings. Her favorite song is called "I Won't Complain."

"She said, 'People don't understand why I sing that song the way I do...that's my testimony,'" her sister, Maggie Johnson, said.

Page's family says the good memories outweigh the bad. The family says they aren't holding any grudges against Davis.

"I forgive him for it, because I know if I don't forgive him, God won't forgive me," Johnson said.

"She loved everybody," Sarita Mungin, Page's niece said. "And so we have to be strong for him as well as strong for the other young lady that lost her life and be strong for our family too."

Funeral arrangements are still pending for Page.
