DURANT, OK - An Oklahoma funeral home is making a special effort to show support for the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre.

Brown's funeral home is encouraging people to sign "Notes for Newtown."

They're hoping to get 10,000 signatures.

They've extended the deadline to January 11th.

After that they will personally deliver the signatures in a memorial book to each victim's family.

You can visit any of the four locations to sign notes for Newtown.

There's one in Durant, Madill, Atoka and Coalgate.
