OGDEN, Utah - Community members in Ogden gathered Saturday to remember the 20 children and 6 adults killed in a Connecticut elementary school shooting.

A candlelight vigil was held at Ogden's Union Station on Saturday evening. Community members gathered to grieve and share their thoughts about the victims, and begin to hope for the future.

Among those gathered were Michael and April Cottle, the aunt and uncle of 6-year-old Emilie Parker, who was among the victims in the shooting.

"I can't express any feelings at this time because it's just too much for me," Michael Cottle said.

April shared words of gratitude for friends and even strangers who offered their support.

"It feels really great. I just know that the community is there to support this family and that they feel the loss themselves," she said.
