Rick Scott paid a special tribute by recognizing three fathers he calls “fallen heroes” in the Orlando shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub. The Florida governor said so many people have done so many acts of kindness in the week following the massacre of 49 people.
Florida Gov. Scott recognized three fathers: Miguel Angel Honorato, father of three, Paul Terrell Henry, father of two and Xavier Emmanuel Serrano Rosado, father of one.
Scott said the following to honor these fallen fathers: “On this Father’s Day, we honor Miguel Angel Honorato, Paul Terrell Henry and Xavier Emmanuel Serrano Rosado who were ruthlessly murdered last week by a terrorist. Their families’ lives have been forever changed by this horrific incident and we will do all we can to help their children and their entire families heal. Today, we will say a special prayer for their children as they mourn the loss of their dads.”
