Families of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School say they will be lighting candles in the victims' memory the night before the shooting's anniversary.
    
Relatives of 14 of the 26 victims appeared at a news conference Monday in Newtown. They asked people to consider marking the anniversary with "acts of kindness" and announced a new website - http://mysandyhookfamily.org - with information on how families are honoring victims.
    
Saturday is the anniversary of the Dec. 14 massacre. Town officials are not hosting formal events that day. Officials including First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra asked at a news conference Monday for the media to give the town privacy on that day.
    
Local officials and members of Connecticut's congressional delegation are also appealing for acts of service and kindness.
