FAIRFIELD - Loved ones packed a Fairfield funeral home today to bid farewell to 6-year-old Noah Pozner, the first of 20 Sandy Hook Elementary School children to be laid to rest.

Family and friends reflected on the 6-year-old's contagious smile and love for his twin sister. The family did not speak on camera, but released a statement suggesting that schools observe a moment of silence at the beginning of each school day.

Tomorrow, a funeral will take place for 6-year-old Jessica Rekos at Saint Rose of Lima Church in Newtown. Her parents say she loved horses and adored playing with her two little brothers.

On Wednesday, 7-year-old Daniel Barden will be buried, and on Thursday, services will be held for 6-year-old Catherine Hubbard.

A funeral will also take place Wednesday for teacher Victoria Soto. The 27-year old was shot and killed while protecting her students.
