North Stonington - "Your support is probably the only reason we're still on our feet right now," Jeremy Perry told a crowd of hundreds gathered for a candlelight vigil Friday night in honor of his two young sons who were shot and killed three days ago.

On a grassy slope wedged between a tennis and basketball court on Rocky Hollow Road, residents of this small town came together to mourn the deaths of two-year-old Alton Perry and six-month-old Ashton Perry, whose grandmother, Debra Denison, 47, shot and killed them Tuesday evening before turning the gun on herself.
