NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - The Connecticut town where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in a school last week has said goodbye with the first two funerals.

Services were held Monday for 6-year-old Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner. Jack was a big New York Giants fan, and Noah liked to figure out how things worked mechanically.

Family, friends and townspeople streamed out of two funeral homes after the services and then headed for two cemeteries.

Outside Noah's service, well-wishers placed two teddy bears, white flowers and a single red rose at the base of a maple tree. At Jack's, hymns rang out from inside.
