One of the woman killed in the tragic shooting at a local Tennessee Waffle House died singing gospel songs, according to CNN.
The site reported that the chain’s CEO Walt Ehmer recounted what a survivor told him happened before the shooting took place in the morning of April 22 at the funeral.
DeEbony Groves, 21, was singing gospel songs with her friend, he said.
“We went and visited with the survivors, and they talked about the people who were in that restaurant before what happened happened, and specifically remembered your daughter,” Ehmer told mourners.
“And (they) spoke of your daughter and her friend, and said they were singing gospel songs. And everybody was singing and enjoying each other and she said, ‘The last thing I remember her saying was, singing Jesus Loves Me.’”
He also offered words of encouragement at the funeral.
“You will get through this because I know by watching this is a very strong, faith-filled community,” he told them.
