    Annie Le Funeral
    Video: Annie Le's Father Speaks At Her Funeral

    EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. - In a ceremony filled with tears and song, the people who loved Annie Le best said goodbye to her on Saturday.

    The private Mass, held in the sloping foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, not far from Le's hometown of Placerville, came nearly two weeks after the 24-year-old graduate student's body was found hidden behind a wall in a Yale laboratory building in New Haven, Conn.

    In eulogies, Le's family and pastor tried to reconcile the young woman's vibrant life with her violent death.

    "We could ask a thousand whys for the rest of our life," said her pastor, Monsignor James Kidder.

    Le's fiancé, Jonathan Widawsky, whom Le was to marry the day she was found dead, did not speak. He looked down somberly for most of the service, his father squeezing his shoulder, while Le's family members stood one by one to remember her.
