Her Final Act – Singing Jesus Loves Me

A young woman who was shot and killed during an attack at a Tennessee Waffle House died singing a gospel song, the restaurant’s CEO said on Saturday. Walt Ehmer recounted during the funeral service for 21-year-old DeEbony Groves what one survivor told him happened during the morning of the attack.

‘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.”’
