Annabelle Renae Pomeroy was the 14-year-old daughter of Sherri and Frank Pomeroy, the church's regular pastor who was traveling when the shooting occurred.
"We lost more than Belle yesterday, and the one thing that gives me a sliver of encouragement is the fact that Belle was surrounded by her church family that she loved fiercely, and vice versa," Sherri Pomeroy said Monday.
"We ate together, we laughed together, we cried together, and we worshipped together. Now most of our church family is gone, our building is probably beyond repair and the few of us that are left behind lost tragically yesterday.
"As senseless as this tragedy was, our sweet Belle would not have been able to deal with losing so much family."
In one sermon posted online, Frank Pomeroy, who rode a motorcycle, spoke about taking his daughter on a ride.
