(AP) - As bells tolled 26 times Saturday to honor the dead on the anniversary of the Sandy Hook school massacre, Ryan Knaggs thought of two young victims who played soccer with his 7-year-old daughter.

"The echo of the bells, knowing some of the children personally, you feel the exactitude with each bell ... the exactitude of the loss and the grief," said Knaggs, a chef who lives in Newtown, Conn.

With snow falling and homes decorated with Christmas lights, Newtown looked every bit the classic New England town. But reminders of the grief were everywhere, as seen in this collection of images.
