MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- A slain FBI agent in Florida is being remembered for her strength, infectious laugh, love of family and commitment to protecting children.

A memorial service was held Saturday for Agent Laura Schwartzenberger at the Miami Dolphins' football stadium.

Schwartzenberger and fellow agent Daniel Alfin were gunned down Tuesday while serving a search warrant at the home of a child pornography suspect.

The suspect killed himself before he could be arrested. FBI Director Christopher Wray said Schwartzenberger chose a high-stress job and worked hard to protect children from online predators.

A separate service for Alfin will be held Sunday at the stadium.
