It was almost a month ago that Christina Grimmie tragically passed away after being shot following her concert in Orlando.
And in a new statement made on Wednesday via the GoFundMe page set up in her honor, Christina’s parents, Bud and Tina, and her brother, Marcus, had this to share:
“The outpouring of love and generosity that has been displayed to our family throughout these last few weeks has far exceeded anything we could have ever imagined. As we have always known, Christina’s life was so very special, not only to us, but to everyone she touched with her joyful heart, beautiful voice and love for life and the Lord.”
“Words cannot express what the many memorials, donations and tributes shared by Christina’s fans and those in the media and entertainment industry mean to us. She will live on in our hearts forever. We will take our time in determining the best ways to honor Christina moving forward.”
In just 25 days, they have raised over $195,000 in donations — but of course, none of this will bring their Christina back.
We wish them the strength to get through this difficult time.
