- A JetBlue flight attendant and a colleague said they took it upon themselves to try and uplift a grieving grandmother aboard their flight to Orlando, Florida on Tuesday.

According to a Facebook post by Kelly Davis Karas, the passenger was the grandmother of Pulse nightclub shooting victim, Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo.

Davis Karas and Melinda Sloop Winstead helped the elderly woman board the plane and brought her water, tissues and a pillow.

As they made their rounds with food and drinks, Davis Karas came up with the idea to have the passengers write the grandmother messages of support.

What the flight attendants thought would be some names on a piece of paper turned into several pages with long messages.

"Instead, we had page after page after page after page of long messages offering condolences, peace, love and support," wrote Davis Karas.

She presented the grandmother with the messages at the end of the flight.

As the passengers de-planed, each and every one stopped to acknowledge the emotional grandmother.
