TUCSON, Arizona - Family and friends had hopeful and emotional words at the memorial service for the Arizona shooting massacre yesterday.

After a visit to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, President Obama said she opened her eyes for the first time.

Giffords managed to also hold her husband's hand yesterday. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand was in the room visiting when it happened.

The memorial service honored the six people killed and the 13 wounded in Saturday's supermarket shooting spree.

A funeral service will be held today for 9-year-old Christina Green.

Obama says he wants to live up to Green's expectations and make America as good as she imagined it.
