BROADALBIN, N.Y. - A candlelight vigil was held in the Village of Broadalbin Thursday night in memory of the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School with special homage paid to Principal Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, whose mother is from Broadalbin.

A prayer chain will began at the Presbyterian Church on West Main Street in Broadalbin and line up in the direction of the Village downtown, toward St. Joseph's Church, starting at 7 p.m.

Dozens gathered to remember Dawn Hochsprung, the Sandy Hook Elementary school principal who died trying to stop that gunman. Hundreds more lined Main Street in front of all four of the village's churches, in what organizers dubbed a "people chain."

Hochsprung's family walked pass, thanking those who came out - her mother and much of her family live in Broadalbin.

A bell tolled, once for each of the victims killed.
