Three days after the shootings, the funerals began. None of them had less than 1,000 people at each one. CNN televised the funeral of Rachel Scott and it become the most-watched thing they'd aired up till that point. Hundreds and hundreds of people turned out to say farewell to each of the Columbine victims. Each funeral was special in its own way, just like the person who was buried.

Below you will find photos of the victims's funerals and gravesites. The images of the funerals below were taken with the knowledge of the families of the victims and are posted here to help illustrate just how tragic an event this truly was. You will not find any images of the killers's funerals as their parents kept the events small and private. Their burial locations are unknown; it's been said that one or both were cremated to prevent tampering with the graves.
