Funerals are being held Saturday in Florida and Missouri for two of the three victims killed in the Fort Hood shooting rampage. Sgt. 1st Class Danny Ferguson, 39, will be honored in a private funeral at Resurrection Catholic Church in Lakeland, Fla., according to the Patriot Guard Riders , who escorted his remains from Tampa International Airport to the funeral home on Friday. “He sacrificed his life to save his fellow soldiers during the Fort Hood rampage,” the profile said. Ivan Lopez — a 34-year-old enlisted soldier — opened fire at Fort Hood on April 2, killing three and injuring 16 before turning the gun on himself, officials said.
