It’s hard to believe that Christina Grimmie has been gone for just about a month.
The 22-year-old singer was fatally shot in Orlando last month by a deranged fan. Her family — mom Tina, dad Bud and brother Marcus — has spoken out for the first time since laying her to rest last month.
“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,” the family told People. “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.”
They added, “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.”
We’ll always miss you, Christina.
