Family and friends of Sylvia Frasier are attending a Saturday morning service at the Rhema Christian Center Church in Washington. Frasier was a network security administrator for Naval Sea Systems Command.

An interfaith prayer service is scheduled Sunday at the Siva Vishnu Temple in Lanham for all the Navy Yard victims.
