THREE WEEKS AGO A HOSPITAL SHOOTING ROCKED THE SPOKANE
CHRIS HENDERSON, ENTERED A BUILDING ON THE DEACONNESS
CAMPUS AND FATALLY SHOT HIS WIFE SHEENA AND THEN HIMSELF
ON THE SEVENTH FLOOR...
TONIGHT, FRIENDS AND FAMILY GATHERED AT FRANKLIN PARK
TO REMEMBER BOTH OF THEM.
KXLY4'S ALLIE NORTON WAS AT THE MEMORIAL THIS EVENING...
ALLIE, HOW WERE PEOPLE FEELING THERE TONIGHT? NADINE,
THIS PARK HAD ABOUT A HUNDRED PEOPLE FROM BOTH SIDES.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF CHRIS AND SHEENA CAME TOGETHER
TO FORGIVE AND MOVE FORWARD.
We lost members of our community.
They lost members of their family, their children
lost two parents who did, who do deeply love them.
COWORKERS OF CHRIS HENDERSON THINK HE WAS THE FUNNIEST
PERSON IN THE ROOM.
PATIENTS THAT SHEENA HENDERSON TOOK BLOOD FROM SAY
SHE MADE HAVING CANCER NOT SO BAD.
ALL WOULD AGREE THAT LOSING BOTH HAS BEEN DEVASTATING.
It's just heartfelt to see all the people come out
here to support my daughter and the people who came
out to speak about Christopher.
GARY KENNISON, SHEENA'S DAD SAYS TONIGHT'S MEMORIAL
WAS ALL ABOUT FORGIVENESS.
HE HOPES THAT ALL WILL LET OUT THE BAD FEELINGS CONSUMED
ON JULY 8.
No matter what he did, no matter how I feel as a father
towards what he has done, I need my grandbabies to
know that he's not the monster that he's portrayed
BOTH SHEENA AND CHRIS WERE REPRESENTED EQUALLY TONIGHT.
I think it's important for the kids to see it's not
all about mommy, it's about daddy too.
A MESSAGE KENNISON HOPES OTHERS TAKE AWAY AS WELL.
We can move forward in a way that's beneficial that
brings meaning and memory to these two individuals.
NADINE, IT SEEMS THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE WHO
ATTENDED TONIGHT'S VIGIL WERE WILLING TO FORGIVE.
REPORTING IN NORTH SPOKANE TONIGHT, I'M ALLIE NORTON
