Loved ones said their final farewells today to two NYPD officers from Long Island killed after a wedding celebration.

Funerals were held this morning for Officer Michael Colangelo, of Huntington Station, and Detective John Martinez, of Hauppauge.

A funeral Mass for Colangelo was held at St. Edward the Confessor Church in Syosset this morning.
