On Dec. 19, three more young children were buried after the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn. took their lives much too soon. The precious children were remembered at their funerals — so sad.
Among the 20 children that were killed on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School by Adam Lanza‘s deadly bullets, three more children were laid to rest on Dec. 19. Charlotte Bacon, 6, Daniel Barden, 7 and Caroline Previdi were all remembered for their kindness, innocence and energy for life.
Charlotte Bacon Loved Animals
According to Charlotte’s obituary, she didn’t meet an animal she didn’t love. She wanted to be a veterinarian, and her favorite color was pink. She was also studying Tae Kwon with her dad and brother.
“She lived life with gusto. This little girl knew how to live life,” her uncle told the Wall Street Journal. Her funeral was held on Dec. 19 at 1 p.m., and her burial was at the Newtown Village Cemetery.
Daniel Barden Wanted to be a Firefighter
Daniel Barden dreamed of being a firefighter like his uncles — and even though his life was tragically taken too soon on Dec. 14, his wish was granted on the morning of Dec. 19 when firefighters attended his funeral to pay respects, and saluted as his hearse went by.
Daniel was remembered as an outgoing kid, who loved sports and played on the soccer team. He also played drums in a band with his older brothers. His funeral was at 10 a.m. on Dec. 19.
Caroline Previdi Known As ‘Silly Caroline’
Caroline was remembered during her funeral service at noon on Dec. 19 as an outgoing girl who loved life. A neighbor told the Associated Press that Caroline was “always wanting others to smile.”
For Christmas the year before, Caroline even emptied out her piggy bank to donate her money to her church. The money was going to presents for underprivileged children.
Such a tragedy as Newtown grieves for their lost children. Our thoughts are with the victims’ families during this difficult time.
