Inside The Funeral Of Jack Pinto, Sandy Hook Victim

One of the first Sandy Hook victims to be laid to rest, Jack’s short life was honored on Dec. 17 in Newtown, CT. So sad.

As Newtown, CT., and the country as a whole, continues to process the horror of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that took place on Friday, Dec. 14, leaving 20 children and six adults dead, one of the first victims has been laid to rest. Jack Pinto, who was just six years old when he tragically lost his life, was buried in Newtown on Dec. 17.

The youngster, who was a huge sports fan, was buried in the jersey of Victor Cruz, his favorite New York Giants player. It’s been reported that the funeral home wasn’t large enough to accomodate the number of families who turned up hoping to pay their respects to little Jack, with many having to stand out in the cold and rain while waiting to honor the young boy.

We continue to keep all the victims lost, their families, and the community of Newtown in our thoughts and prayers during this tragic time of loss.
