Gallery: Candlelight Memorial For Victims in Connecticut Shooting

Moloney Funeral Home holds vigil, offers thoughts and prayers for victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Each speaker had a personalized reaction to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but collectively they offered hope and encouragement during an emotional tribute held at Moloney Funeral Home in Lake Ronkonkoma on Tuesday night.

Leaders from the Jewish and Christian faiths gathered on the steps of the Mother Teresa Tribute Center and spoke about the senseless tragedy and what hope for eternity we can glean from the event. In the end, Dan Moloney read off the names of all 26 victims of the shooting in Newtown Conn. Sobs were audible during the reading.

In our gallery, a look at the more than 100 Sachem community residents who attended the vigil and lit a candle in remembrance.
