In a handwritten note accompanying a floral wreath, Rowling's penned the heartbreaking message: "To Luis, who died for love. You will never be forgotten."

Almost one week after deadliest mass shooting in American history, if you would like to help the Orlando shooting victims and their families, donations are being accepted on Equality Florida's GoFundMe page.
