Christina Grimmie‘s private funeral was held early Friday (June 18) and that evening a memorial service was held for friends and fans to remember the late singer.
“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. And then they had to get things ready for tour,” Tina explained, before breaking down into tears.
Tina added, “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.”
Bud also spoke, saying, “There’s this gigantic hole in my heart that I know is never going to go away. Never going to go away…She’s better off. She’s way more alive now than she’s ever been. She’s not going to be hurt anymore.”
