The stories of the victims of Sunday's massacre in Las Vegas are as diverse as America itself, 58 people, all with friends and families and jobs and dreams. Those who knew them are choosing to remember not how they left this world, but what they did in their all-too-short time in it.

They were school teachers and youth football coaches, real estate agents and local business owners.

They were parents, siblings, husbands, wives, neighbors and friends.

They traveled to Las Vegas to see their favorite stars, posting videos and photos to social media.

At least 58 of them never made it home after a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel onto a crowd of more than 22,000 below at the country music Route 91 Harvest Festival on Oct. 1.

Across the United States and Canada, hundreds of people paid tribute to their loved ones in quiet private moments, at vigils and through social media.
