Mourners honor Charlottesville victim at memorial service

A memorial service for Heather Heyer is scheduled Wednesday morning at a downtown Charlottesville theater.

Ms Heyer, 32, was killed during clashes on Saturday between white nationalists attending a "Unite the Right" rally and counter-protesters.

Trump said Tuesday he has not reached out to Heyer's family.

"I'm sorta glad that them people got hit and I'm glad that girl died", he said.

"She wanted equality and in this issue of the day of her passing, she wanted to put down hate", Mr. Heyer told attendees, whom were asked to wear purple, her favorite color.

Heather's father Mark Heyer said his daughter had strong convictions and was passionate about helping people.

The president also praised Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, after she thanked him for his "words of comfort" when he condemned on Monday the groups behind the rally.

"I'd rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we're gonna make it count". "We don't all have to die, we don't all have to sacrifice our lives". They sang several spirituals and observed a moment of silence for the three lives lost during Saturday's violence.

"You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would have done and you make it happen", she says.

"No father should have to do this, but I love my daughter, and as I look out on you guys, you loved her, too".

Susan Bro urged mourners to "take that extra step". "This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy, this is not the end of Heather's legacy", she told listeners.

"This could be a storm in a teacup and it could all be for nothing", she said.

"This is an incredible opportunity, and I'm glad they thought of me, and I'm glad I was available", Welty said, referring to the work in Charlottesville.
