GLADE SPRING, VA (WJHL) -

Hundreds in the Glade Spring and Bristol communities visited today to honor the lives of a mother, her son, and a grandmother who were killed in a shooting Tuesday morning.

Even Kristin's father, Dr. Terry Griffin was in attendance. He is now out of the hospital, although still in a wheelchair.

Kristin Griffin Palmer, Griffin Palmer and Nancy Griffin were killed after Kristin’s husband, Kevin Palmer, broke into her parents’ home on Graceland Lane armed with handguns.

Kevin Palmer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kristin’s father, Terry Griffin, was shot in the arm during the shooting rampage.

Friday afternoon, a receiving of friends will be held this afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Emory and Henry Memorial Chapel. A service celebrating their lives will follow at 8:00 p.m., according to officials at Emory and Henry.

Since a large crowd is expected, a shuttle service will be provided from the Patrick Henry High School’s front parking lot to the Emory and Henry Memorial Chapel.

According to the funeral home’s website, in lieu of flowers, donations are asked to be made to two separate funds:

Patrick Henry High School Athletic Program
31437 Hillman Highway
Glade Spring, Virginia, 2434

Virginia High School Drama Program
220 Lee Street
Bristol, Virginia, 24201
