Waffle House Shooting Victim Died Singing Gospel Songs
Waffle House’s CEO Walt Ehmer, speaking at the funeral of the 21-year-old victim, said that he’d talked to survivors. “They talked about the people who were in that restaurant before what happened happened, and specifically remembered your daughter,” he said. “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.’”
