We know it is a very difficult time for families that are still waiting for information. As difficult as it is, we ask for patience, compassion and love. Pulse remains an active crime scene. Law enforcement is working the scene as efficiently and diligently as possible while being respectful to the remains of the deceased
We are setting up additional means of communication. We have the hotline, where it is important if you have a loved one that you believe is a victim to call. We are setting up a website. Cityoforlando.net/victims will be updated with the names of the deceased after the next of kin is notified.
We have all the resources at the state and federal government to offer.
Our community will be grieving together for the next days, weeks and months.
We need to support each other, love each other and this will not define us but will bring us together
Aspire Health has offered grief counselors and can be reached through the Zebra Coalition. The LGBT Center on Mills is also open with grief counselors.
