Mourners filled a church in Florida on Saturday to honor a US soldier whose combat death in Africa led to a political fight between President Donald Trump and a Florida congresswoman.

Sgt La David T Johnson’s pregnant widow, Myeshia, held the arm of an Army officer as she led her family, dressed in white, into Christ the Rock Community Church in Cooper City. The family asked that reporters remain outside.

The modern hymn ‘I’m Yours’ by Jason Mraz could be heard coming from inside. Flags across Florida flew at half-staff as Johnson’s remains were afterwards transported to be buried at Memorial Gardens East cemetery in Hollywood, Florida.

Several service members were in attendance, in salute, as was Rep Frederica Wilson (D – Miami) who has been embroiled in a row with Trump over a seemingly insensitive phone call the president had with Johnson’s family.

Myeshia carried a folded American flag in her arms and kissed the top of her husband’s coffin before she laid it down. A family member helped the couple’s two-year-old son, La David Jr, do the same.
