As CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported, it was a day of agonizing pain and suffering for the family and friends of Andrea Rebello, who died too young and so tragically.
The line of mourners stretched all the way down the driveway of the Tarrytown funeral home at times as a crowd dressed in black filed in to remember a life cut short.
