A transcript of Nicole Oulson’s statement to the media during her news conference to discuss the death of her husband, Chad, who was fatally shot in a Wesley Chapel movie theater.
“I just want to thank you all on behalf of myself, and my daughter Alexis, and our family for your understanding, all of your thoughts and prayers, and all of the support from the community during this horrible time of grief and sadness for our family. Right now I’m just still trying to recover from the shock and my main focus is, and always will be, on my daughter Alexis. It’s just unimaginable. Me and my husband didn’t get a date night very often, much less a whole day to spend together, so I was just so excited and looking forward to spending the day with the love of my life at a place of family entertainment. And just to think that in a blink of an eye, my whole world just got shattered into a million pieces and now I’m left trying to pick them up and put them all back together, and it’s so hard and it’s so unbearable. And I want to thank you all for your thoughts and your prayers. Thank you. “
