NEWTOWN, Conn. - (AP) -- A season that should be a time of joy has been marked by heart-wrenching loss in Newtown, as more victims from the massacre of 20 children and six adults are laid to rest.

At least nine funerals and wakes were held Wednesday for those who died when gunman Adam Lanza, armed with a military-style assault rifle, broke into Sandy Hook Elementary School Friday and opened fire. Lanza killed his mother at her home before the attack and committed suicide at the school as police closed in.

More services are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Edward Kish says he bought a Christmas tree two days before the shooting but he just hasn't had the heart to put it up or decorate it.
