AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Mourners at a memorial service have remembered a Texas father and son who were killed in the truck attack two weeks ago in Nice, France.

Hundreds gathered Thursday evening at Lake Hills Church in Austin to celebrate the lives of 51-year-old Sean Copeland and 11-year-old Brodie Copeland. The Austin-area father and son were on a European vacation with their family when they were among 84 people killed as a truck driver indiscriminately drove through a crowd.

The Copeland family said in a statement that a bright spot in the sorrow and grief has been family, friends and “countless strangers” whose love, prayers and message of support have been a comfort.

Cary Copeland remembered his brother Sean’s “remarkable laugh” and Maegen Copeland recalled her stepbrother’s ability to make people smile.
