The youngest of the 50 victims of the Florida nightclub massacre was remembered Friday at a funeral service in Philadelphia attended by about 600 people. Many wore red, her favorite color, as a tribute to her.
Akyra Murray, 18, was recalled as a gifted athlete, an accomplished student and person with a positive spirit.
‘She just wanted to be the best,’ said her brother, Alex Murray. ‘She will truly be missed. I love you, Kirra.’
