J.K. Rowling is still remembering the loss of Luis Vielma, a 22-year-old Harry Potter World employee who died in last week's mass shooting in Orlando.

On Friday, a gathering of those close to Vielma was surprised with a wreath of red roses and carnations and a touching note sent by the Harry Potter scribe.

The British writer's kind note follows the heartfelt message she shared via Twitter on Monday.

"Luis Vielma worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal. He was 22 years old," she tweeted. "I can't stop crying."
