LEAWOOD, Kan. -- A celebration of life for Dr. William Corporon and his grandson, 14-year-old Reat Underwood, was held Friday at the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan.

They were killed Sunday, April 13, outside the Jewish Community Center. Terri LaManno was also shot and killed outside Village Shalom, a retirement center.

The tragedy weighed heavily in the sanctuary, but the service was uplifting as well. The Corporon family talked about their loved ones. One, a beloved doctor whose life's work was helping others and most cherished job was that of a grandfather.

The other was a boy who was an Eagle Scout, loved to hunt and was in the Blue Valley Choir. One of the most touching moments was when Reat’s brother Lucas spoke, able to mix in a little bit of laughter in an emotionally trying situation.

Watch the videos for full coverage of Friday’s services from both inside and outside of the sanctuary.
