Flowers sit outside Pritchett Trucking and a flag remains at half staff as employees prepare to bury the company's founder and three colleagues.
"I don't think anybody can make sense of it. It was such a useless thing to have happened to all of them," said Bobbie Oden, who along with her husband was best friends with 80-year-old Marvin Pritchett (pictured, below). "Nobody can ever fill his shoes, nobody."
Pritchett, one of the victims of Saturday's shooting in Lake Butler, grew up in Union County and spent his life giving back to it.
"I don't think they've realized what a loss this is going to mean for the county because he did so much for them monetarily, figuratively," Oden said. "He was just always a hands-on person. If anybody needed anything, he was the first one on the doorstep."
Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado (pictured, below), another of the victims, arrived at Pritchett's door nine years ago from Nicaragua. The 28-year old farmhand worked hard to put his sisters through college back home.
"He was a good man and he was a proud man," said Martha Tilton, who was set to become Gonzalez-Delgado's mother-in-law. "He was proud of Nicaragua. He was proud to be over here in America because he was trying to pursue the dream that his mother and his sisters could have a better life."
He was also making a better life for himself, with plans to marry his girlfriend of four years in October.
She and her mom are distraught.
"It will be an indescribable void in our life because God sent a blessing to us when Rolando came into our life," Tilton said.
Now family and friends are trying to figure out how to move on without these two men and carry on their legacies that helped make their community a better place.
"You wake up in the mornings -- if you get to sleep, you wake up, and I just stand and look out the window at my pasture and wonder, 'You know, it's never going to be the same,'" Oden said.
