NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - One after another, the town of Newtown, Conn., has been burying the victims of Friday's school massacre.
Mourners wore pink ties and scarves at the funeral of 6-year-old Caroline Previdi -- pink was her favorite color. Across town, hundreds gathered for the funeral of another 6-year-old, Charlotte Helen Bacon. Many wore buttons with pictures of the 6-year-old redhead.
Long funeral processions have been filling the streets of Newtown, where Christmas trees have been turned into memorials. At least nine funerals and wakes were held Wednesday for the victims.
A priest who worked at a Catholic church in Newtown before transferring to a church in Greenwich is back at his old parish to comfort families. The Rev. John Inserra says, "It's sad to see the little coffins," and that it's "always hard to bury a child."
In the town of Stratford, a teacher who was gunned down during the shootings in Newtown was remembered as a hero who died trying to shield her students. Outside Victoria Soto's funeral, a family friend said it's "pretty apparent" how selfless she was.
Soto was among six educators who died along with 20 children.
