Residents from Madison and surrounding towns packed the First Congregational Church Sunday night to pay tribute to those lost in the Newtown, CT tragedy.

Madison resident Ellen Kelly says the service was very moving, particularly the part where they read off the names, and lit the candles.

"It was a beautiful tribute to those we lost in Newtown," Kelly said. " The church was absolutely packed.  The candle-lighting was so moving."

Madison Schools Superintendent Thomas Scarice, who attended as well, agreed.

"It was very nicely done, just what the community needed," he said.
