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 2 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.
