Boehm shared the following statement from the family, “On behalf of the entire Dieckhaus family, we thank everyone for your continued thoughts and prayers as we grieve the unimaginable loss of Evelyn Dieckhaus. Evelyn was a shining light, and she will be greatly missed by all.”
A Tuesday night mass remembered 9-year-old Nashville shooting victim Evelyn Dieckhaus, who has family in Franklin County.
* This is so tough. I saw this little girl’s picture and read a bit about her yesterday. So…I don’t know why it hit me so dang hard this morning. I kinda threw the iPad across the bed just now when I saw her beautiful innocent hinhing face. It hurt my heart cause my chest started hurting and I had to sit down. It took me a minute to slow my breathing down. Omg, how in heaven’s name are these poor families handling this horrific tragedy? It’s so ******* unfair. It’s wrong.This goes against all moral rules of the land.
