SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) — Dozens of funeral directors who helped the families of 20 elementary school students and six educators killed in Newtown, Conn., have held an emotional service during which they recalled the shooting and the unfathomable work they did in December.

About 80 funeral directors at the 11 funeral homes that served the Newtown families and others who volunteered their services shed tears and hugged each other when they gathered Saturday in Southbury for a service of remembrance and reflection.

The Connecticut Funeral Directors Association organized the event to recognize the work done by the funeral directors.

Twenty-six candles burned on a table in front of the room as participants streamed in.

The service began with the group's executive director, John Cascio, reading the name of each victim.
