Little Noah was killed on Dec. 14 after gunman Adam Lanza attacked Sandy Hook Elementary School, a shooting massacre that took the lives of 20 kids and six adults. His parents relived the little boy’s happy moments during his funeral on Dec. 17. Read on for the full heartfelt eulogy.
Noah Pozner, 6, is remembered as a clever and kind young boy, a bright soul who was taken much too early at the hands of cold-blooded killer Adam Lanza, 20, after he gunned down Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtowon, Conn. on Dec. 14. Noah was laid to rest on Dec. 17, and his uncle Alexis Haller delivered a beautiful eulogy, as posted by the New York Post via the Associated Press:
“Words cannot express the unfathomable loss we feel.
Noah was a wonderful son and a loving brother. He was kind, caring, smart, funny, and sometimes even a little mischievous. He liked to tell his sisters that he worked in a taco factory; when they asked him how he got to work, he would give them a funny look as if to say he knew something that they didn’t.
Noah was a little kid. He loved animals, video games and Mario Brothers. He was already a very good reader, and had just bought a Ninjago book at a book fair that he was really excited about reading. He was also very excited about going to a birthday party he had been invited to. It was to take place on Saturday, Dec. 15.
Noah loved his family dearly, especially his mom, his dad, his big sisters Danielle and Sophia, his big brother Michael, and his dear twin Arielle. He called Arielle his best friend, and she was — and always had been.
If Noah had not been taken from us, he would have become a great man. He would been a wonderful husband and a loving father. He would have been a backbone of our family for years to come. His loss, and our loss, are deep indeed.
It is unspeakably tragic that none of us can bring Noah back. We would go to the ends of the Earth to do so, but none of us can.
What we can do is carry Noah within us, always. We can remember the joy he brought to us. We can hold his memory close to our hearts. We can treasure him forever. And all of us, including the family, the community, the country and the world, can honor Noah by loving each other and taking care of each other. That’s what Noah would have wanted.
Noah, we love you so much, we miss you dearly, and we will never, ever forget you.”
Such beautiful words for an unthinkable tragedy. Our thoughts are with Noah’s family during this difficult time.
