CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Monday marks 4 years since a young man opened fire at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, killing 9 parishioners that were at a Bible study.
This week there will be services, memorials, and events to honor those that lost their lives. One of those that will be in attendance is former North Carolina State Senator Malcolm Graham.
“When I go down there, there is always a big hole and missing piece and that is Cynthia,” said Graham. “Anytime I would visit, I would stay with Cynthia. Cynthia was my big sister and also a mother figure to me.”
