More than 100 people crowded into an intimate memorial service Saturday morning for Stephen Alex Rane, a senior at the University of Maryland, College Park who police say was killed Tuesday by his housemate.

During the 40-minute service, mourners made little other mention of the circumstances of Rane's death.

"A lot of politicians take polls," said House Speaker Michael E. Busch Monday at a memorial service for Callahan.

A week after Weaver, 82, passed away on a baseball-themed cruise, he received a tribute that encapsulated him not just as a feisty Hall of Fame manager, but a loyal friend and family patriarch.
