Texas Church to Be Razed After Massacre
"There's too many that do not want to go back in there," Pastor Frank Pomeroy told The Wall Street Journal. Pomeroy’s 14-year-old daughter, Annabelle, died in the shooting.
"The pastor expressed his desire that perhaps the best way forward is to have the church demolished and replaced with a prayer garden," convention spokesman Roger "Sing" Oldham, said, reports USA Today, adding that parishioners haven't "had a chance to fully deal with the grief and then come together to make a decision."
Oldham explained the church would be “too stark of a reminder” of the massacre.
Charlene Uhl, mother of 16-year-old Haley Krueger, who died in the attack, agreed that the church should come down.
