Hundreds attend memorial for slain mother, 2 children

Hundreds came to John Jay Middle School today for a memorial service for Amy Friedlander and her two children, Molly, 10, and Gregory, 8, who were killed last month.

Police say the three were killed by Amy's husband and the children's father, Sam Friedlander, who then killed himself.

Those who spoke at the event remembered how devoted Amy was as a mother who loved her children.

"I think what will come of it eventually is that we'll make some peace with it, and figure out how to integrate this loss into our lives," says Rabbi Carla Freedman.
