One of this week's more alarming stories was the account of a 911 phone call in which a man calmly told the dispatcher he'd just shot someone to death. It turns out that the victim was Jaquelyn Larue Gore -- 48-year-old daughter of Jackie Gore, the iconic singer from The Embers and Legends of the Beach.
"We're doing about as well as can be expected," Gore said Thursday afternoon, shortly before his daughter's memorial service. "Just taking it a minute at a time. It's a terrible thing to lose your daughter like that. She would have been 49 in August. We had a great relationship."
The last time Gore saw his daughter was Saturday, the day before her death. He even talked to her on the phone on Sunday, about an hour before the shooting.
"It was a great conversation," Gore said. "Just father and daughter stuff, one thing and another. She was getting ready to watch the NASCAR races."
