    Annabelle “was one very beautiful special child,” Pomeroy told ABC News by phone.

    Pomeroy said he was in Oklahoma this morning -- a rare weekend that he wasn't at the church.

    Annabelle is his youngest daughter.

    The other victims are all close friends of his, he said. They range in age from 18 months to 77 years old.

    The shooter, Devin Kelley, 26, died of a self-inflicted gunshot a few miles away from the church.
