NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) -- Funerals and memorial services are wrapping up for the 26 children and adults killed on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., just over a week ago.
On Saturday, a horse-drawn carriage brought the miniature coffin of Ana Marquez-Greene to a church in Bloomfield, Conn., where a thousand mourners gathered. The service for the 6-year-old included a performance by Harry Connick Jr., who has played with the girl's jazz saxophonist father, Jimmy Greene, according to the Connecticut Post.
Family members remembered her as wild-haired child with her own love of music.
At the funeral for Josephine Gay in Newtown, Monsignor Robert Weiss of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church said the 7-year-old liked Barbie, her iPad and the color purple.
Dozens of emergency responders paid their respects at the start of the service.
In northern Utah, 6-year-old Emilie Parker was laid to rest in Ogden, next to her maternal grandfather, who died 2 1/2 months earlier.
