Friends at Fox61 were devastated, and a counselor was called in.
Graziano, in a memo to the staff of Fox61 and The Courant, described Morrin as "smart, funny and kind with a caring heart. She touched the people she encountered with a unique quality of grace and class."
On Monday night, friends and relatives gathered in front of the Morrin house for a candlelight vigil. They also expressed shock and sadness.
"She was the nicest, sweetest lady," neighbor Steve Sequist said. "I was just really shocked."
If you're in a bad relationship:
>> Have a safe place to go if an argument occurs - avoid rooms with no exits or rooms with weapons.
>> Make a list of people to contact.
>> Keep change with you at all times.
>> Memorize important numbers.
>> Establish a code word or sign so that family or friends know when to call for help.
