    The owner of the gay nightclub in Florida that was the site of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history says she misses the club.

    Pulse owner Barbara Poma said Monday during a midday service outside the nightclub that she is planning to open a memorial at the site of the club, which has been closed since the massacre.

    "I miss Pulse," she said. "We are one Pulse. We are one love."

    Monday marked the anniversary of the shooting on June 12, 2016. Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more were injured inside the nightclub.
