BARRE, Vt. - Flags in New Hampshire will be lowered to honor James Foley on Sunday.

The New Hampshire Governor's Office says Foley's memorial service will also be held on Sunday.

New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan issued this statement on James Foley:
“James Foley exemplified the best of our journalistic ideals, fearlessly going to some of the world’s most dangerous places to expose the horrific consequences of war and the beautiful humanity of those innocent civilians affected by it. An unconscionable act of terror took him from us far too soon, but his unyielding commitment to advancing our cherished First Amendment right across the globe and the truths he unveiled will live on forever. As Granite Staters and people around the world mourn, our thoughts and prayers remain with the Foley family and their loved ones.”
