Va. Tech massacre victim mourned in Middletown

A memorial service was held for one of the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre in Westtown Wednesday.

Car loads of friends traveled from Virginia to say goodbye to 19-year-old Caitlin Hammaren, of Westtown. Nine days ago, Seung-Hui Cho went on a shooting rampage and killed 32 students at Virginia Tech before taking his own life.

Hammaren was remembered as a leader who was a friend to so many while at Minisink Valley High School. Several friends said they will remember her contagious smile and charismatic personality.
