Kimberly Morris, one of 49 people who were shot and killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, has been laid to rest in Kissimmee, Florida. Morris, who worked as a bouncer at pulse, was one of the first burials for Sunday's shooting. Omar Mateen riddled the club with bullets before he was shot dead by police after a harrowing three-hour standoff with police. Many more families must now say goodbye to their loved ones, like Angel Candelario Padro, whose body has just been returned to Puerto Rico.
