Members of Charleston church that was the scene of 2015 mass shooting visit Tree of Life

From Pittsburgh-

The four Coakley sisters stood together in front of the Tree of Life synagogue Friday afternoon, listening as the rabbi recounted small details about the 11 congregants whose lives ended there Oct. 27. 

They traveled to Pittsburgh with a group from Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., to share with those here their own experience. 

Their sister, Myra Thompson, was among the nine people killed at the church known as Mother Emanuel on June 17, 2015, as she led her first Bible study.

Ms. Thompson, 59, had just received her license to preach that day.
