BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) Aaron Hernandez's family and friends bid farewell to the former NFL star at a private funeral Monday, and a judge ordered that three suicide notes he left be turned over to his fiancee by the time he is buried.

Dozens of mourners turned out for the invitation-only service in Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, including his mother and fiancee, several of his defense attorneys, and friends from his playing days with the University of Florida and the New England Patriots.

Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, hanged himself in his cell in a maximum-security prison in Massachusetts on April 19. Only days earlier he had been acquitted of murder charges in the shooting deaths of two men in Boston in 2012.
