SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of mourners packed two Southern California churches to remember two victims of the San Bernardino massacre.

Tin Nguyen was honored in a service conducted in Vietnamese on Saturday at St. Barbara’s Catholic Church in Santa Ana, near Orange County’s Little Saigon.

Her fiance carried a portrait of the 31-year-old as members of the standing-room only crowd reached out to touch it. The couple had planned to marry in 2017.

Nguyen’s mother and grandmother, both weeping, followed the casket down the aisle to the altar.

Meanwhile friends and family of Isaac Amanios filled St. Mina Coptic Orthodox Church in Colton.

The 60-year-old’s wife waved her arms in front of a portrait of Amanios set up next to his casket. Their three adult children were among the mourners.
