Mourners were packing churches in Ohio and Texas to remember two victims of the shooting spree at a Colorado movie theater.

Pastors at 27-year-old Matt McQuinn's funeral in his western Ohio hometown of Springfield spoke Saturday of the senselessness of the July 20 massacre in Aurora, Colo., that killed 12 and wounded 58 others, and of McQuinn's sacrifice.

McQuinn saved his girlfriend's life by diving in front of her and taking three bullets. He had just moved to Colorado last fall.

At Jessica Ghawi's funeral in her hometown of San Antonio, mourners focused their remarks on the 24-year-old aspiring sports journalist's energy and life.

Ghawi was a pretty, blue-eyed redhead who had survived a shooting at a Toronto mall only to be killed at the Aurora theater.
