Mom Of Orlando Shooting Victim Does This At His Funeral…Relatives Shocked

In a heartbreaking scene, the mother of Eddie Justice, an Orlando shooting victim, was simply overwhelmed to the point of collapse. Her son was only 30 years-old. And the grief is beyond comprehension. A parent never expects to outlive a child.

From the Daily Mail:

One of the last things he texted her was ‘I love you’ as he was held hostage in the bathroom of the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando.

And as Mina Justice said goodbye to her son Eddie, one of the 49 killed in the worst mass shooting in US history, on Saturday the devastation was too much to bear.

The shattered mother collapsed at Eddie’s open casket funeral. Relatives caught her before she fell to the ground and called 911. Mina was strapped to a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.

Eddie, 30, had only been in the club for a few minutes when Omar Mateen barged in and showered the nightclub with bullets.

‘Mommy I love you. In the club they shooting,’ his first text read.

‘U ok,’ she responded before her son wrote back ‘trapp (sic) in bathroom.’

Mina then asked which club he was in and asked him to call her.

‘Call them mom,’ he replied. ‘Now. He’s coming. I’m gonna die.’

Mina stood outside Pulse that night, hoping for any shred of information. It wouldn’t be until the next day that authorities would confirm her son was dead.

Rest in peace Eddie. And for Mina Justice, we pray that God will heal her heart as she goes into the future without her precious boy. May Eddie be remembered and honored, and may the love he had for his mommy bring her comfort.
