Sharonda Singleton was living what would appear to be a full and busy life.
She was also a reverend at Emanuel AME Church, and she was a member of a sporting family.
She was married to Christopher Singleton, who played football at Tennessee State University. And her son, Chris, who was born in 1995, plays baseball for Charleston Southern University.
Before fighting off tears as he hugged his teammates, Chris Singleton described his mother as “a God-fearing woman (who) loved everybody with all her heart.”
“Love is always stronger than hate,” he told reporters. “So if we just loved the way my mom would, then the hate won’t be anywhere close to what it is.”
