She played soccer, and baseball too. She went to church every week, and sometimes rode with her father on his turquoise and cream Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Annabelle Pomeroy, 14, was one of 26 worshipers killed at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Nov. 5 by a lone gunman with a history of domestic violence.

The 14-year-old's parents, pastor Frank Pomeroy of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs and Sherri Pomeroy, were out of town when a man opened fire inside the church in the small South Texas community on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, killing more than two dozens, including Annabelle.

“She was such a beautiful girl,” Rita Brown, Annabelles grandmother, told the Express-News last week. “I just dont know what else to say except Im going to miss her so much. She was the light of my life.”

Frank and Sherri Pomeroy were out of state when the massacre occurred. Annabelle was sitting alongside Richard and Therese Rodriguez, who were also killed and whose funeral was on Saturday. Officials said the killer, Devin P. Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, fled when a church neighbor shot him twice. Kelley crashed his vehicle shortly afterward and shot himself to death.
