Instead of running away, McCool threw herself on her son, shielding him from the deadly bullets fired by shooter Omar Mateen. She saved his life, but lost her own.
At her funeral at the First United Methodist Church of Orlando today, Henderson, 21, broke down as he paid heartfelt tribute to his mother, almost unable to stand while he spoke.
"I never thought that her life would be ended right in front of my eyes," he said, before collapsing in tears. "My mother accepted everyone with open arms. She loved everybody equally no matter what."
