Thirteen Days Before Her First Birthday, Girl Killed, Parents Forgive
The Kansas City Star – 11-month old Autumn Nicole Humphrey, while being held by her grandfather, was struck by the out-of-control car of an 88-year-old driver and she was killed. As the Rev. Tiger Pennington prepared to conduct her funeral, he heard something that restored his strength–and moved him to tears.
Autumn Humphrey’s parents asked to meet with the 88-year-old man who was driving the car.
Then they forgave him, Pennington told reporters Saturday outside the First Baptist Church of North Kansas City, and they asked him to sit with the family during the service.
