Just awful. Christina Grimmie’s mom Tina broke down in tears when it came to speaking about her daughter at ‘The Voice’ star’s funeral. But she was full of praise for her son Marcus, who tried valiantly to save his sister from gunmen Kevin Loibl. Click here to see the truly heartbreaking video.
This is just horrible. Christina Grimmie‘s funeral was obviously a very sombre occasion on June 17, as her family took center stage to share their thoughts about The Voice singer who tragically lost her life. Their world stopped on June 10 when a gunmen attacked her at a meet-and-greet in Orlando, Florida after a show, so is it any wonder why her mom Tina Grimmie broke down while delivering her own eulogy.
It was a very difficult situation for Tina to be in, especially during a very difficult week in Florida where tensions are high about gun control. So when she stepped up in front of close family and friends, it was an incredibly brave thing to do. But she couldn’t keep her emotions in check when she discussed her memories of Christina.
Tina, revealed, “The last time I saw my daughter was on my birthday. It was May 25th and the day before, the 24th we had a mother-daughter – we always have a mother-daughter time. We’d go get something to eat and talk and then we went on my birthday – me, Bud, Christina and Mark – we went to Cheesecake Factory and it was really nice.” She added, “And then they had to get things ready for tour,” before breaking down completely.
But Tina bravely continued. “I always told her I loved her…I just want her to come home and I want to see her…I was really mad, but when Christina went home to be with the Lord Jesus, I told him ‘I’m not mad. I’m not mad. But I want to know why.’ I’m just taking one day at a time and the prayers that hold me up.”
This is absolutely heartbreaking, and the worst possible thing that could ever happen to a parent — losing one of their children. We have the deepest sympathies for the family.
