The first funeral for the victims of Sunday’s massacre were held yesterday, as the people of Orlando continue to deal with the aftermath of the atrocity. Kimberly Morris was one of the first victims who found her rest.
Mourners yesterday flocked to the funeral of one of the first victims to be laid to rest. Kimberly ‘KJ’ Morris, who was buried at Osceola Memory Gardens Cemetery in Kissimmee, Florida. Morris moved to Orlando a few months, and had only recently started working as a bouncer at Pulse. Friends said they remembered Morris’ dancing and infectious smile.
“She’d just started working there and told me how she was thrilled to get more involved in the LGBT community there,” her ex-girlfriend Starr Shelton told the Orlando Sentinel. “She was so excited.” That was her personality: smiling, laughing, music, let’s dance,” her uncle, Bryant Davies, added. Kim loved to have fun and she was often the source of it”.
Kimberly was a person of light and she will remain in memory of her dearest people.
