JK Rowling sent a wonderful message to the funeral of one of the Orlando victims

“To Luis, who died for love.”

LAST WEEK’S MASS shooting in Pulse Nightclub, Orlando, saw 49 people lose their lives.

Among those tragically killed was 22-year-old Luis Vielma, who worked on a theme park ride in Universal Orlando Resort’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

On Sunday, JK Rowling led the tribute to the young man and shared a photograph of him wearing his work uniform.

On Friday, family and friends gathered to remember Luis at a visitation where they were met by a wreath sent by JK Rowling.

To Luis, Who died for love. You will never be forgotten. J.K. Rowling
