Family and friends say slain journalist James Foley was a compassionate and capable journalist who tried to see the good in others.

Foley was abducted in Syria in November 2012 and hadn’t been heard from since until a video showing his killing at the hands of Islamic State extremists was posted on the Internet in August.

Hundreds of people filled Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church on Saturday in Foley’s hometown of Rochester, New Hampshire, during a memorial Mass on what would have been his 41st birthday. Afterward, friends paid tribute to Foley in a poignant ceremony.

One friend, Jeremy Osgood, said there were two absolutes in Foley’s life: His faith and his family. Osgood said those gave him a “wealth of strength and courage.”
