Registry books have been set up at all three locations of Forest Hill Funeral Home and Memorial Park for those wishing to send thoughts and condolences to the families affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut on Friday.

The books will remain open until December 22nd, and then they'll be sent to Newtown. Locations for Forest Hill are 2440 Whitten Road, 2545 East Holmes Road, and 1661 S. Elvis Presley Blvd.

Twenty-seven people were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday, including 20 children, six adults who worked at the school, and gunman 20-year-old Adam Lanza. His mother, Nancy Lanza, was shot at her home as well. The shooting was the second-deadliest school shooting in American history, following the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 people dead.
