Newtown Holds Funerals As School's Future Debated

Posted: Updated:

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - The first two funerals for victims of last week's school shooting are under way in Connecticut.
    
Six-year-old Jack Pinto was a big New York Giants fan. Noah Pozner was the same age and liked to figure out how things worked mechanically.
    
Family, friends and townspeople streamed to two funeral homes Monday. In front of one where relatives were mourning Noah, well-wishers placed two teddy bears, a bouquet of white flowers and a single red rose at the base of a maple tree.
    
At Jack's service, hymns rang out from inside the funeral home.
