But with china receiving the money that she's receiving and knowing that she is getting her daughters funeral home bill paid off it didn't bother her to work there as long as it's for her daughter. China being the only one not to go see Aminas's grave depressed Aminas father Trip. China never really pressured Trip to be apart of Aminas life because she didn't want to take away any of his chi
