Florida Gov. Rick Scott, First Lady Ann Scott and the three members of the Florida Cabinet on Friday took turns laying yellow roses next to photos of the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando.

Each of the 49 killed at the Pulse night club are memorialized in front of Florida's Historic Capitol in Tallahassee with state of Florida flags. Scott did not speak with reporters at the event, but later issued a statement that he has directed that the photos of the victims remain on display for 49 days.

"The memory of this horrific tragedy will never be forgotten, as well as the legacies of each of the 49 victims," Scott said in the statement.  "While we can never completely heal from the pain of such loss, we continue to be reminded of each life taken in Orlando and their individual impact on so many."
