She played soccer, and baseball too. She went to church every week, and sometimes rode with her father on his turquoise and cream Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Annabelle Pomeroy, 14, was one of 26 worshipers killed at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Nov. 5 by a lone gunman with a history of domestic violence.

On Monday, one week and one day later, her adoptive parents, Pastor Frank and Sherri Pomeroy, held services for their daughter at the first Baptist Church in La Vernia, according to Franklin Funeral Home’s Facebook page.

“She was such a beautiful girl,” Rita Brown, Annabelle’s grandmother, told the Express-News last week. “I just don’t know what else to say except I’m going to miss her so much. She was the light of my life.”

Frank and Sherri Pomeroy were out of state when the massacre occurred. Annabelle was sitting alongside Richard and Therese Rodriguez, who were also killed and whose funeral was on Saturday. Officials said the killer, Devin P. Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, fled when a church neighbor shot him twice. Kelley crashed his vehicle shortly afterward and shot himself to death.
