NEWTOWN - Three more funerals were held today for the young victims of the Newtown school shooting.

Family and friends said goodbye to Daniel Barden at St. Rose of Lima Church. The 7-year-old was remembered as a polite, affectionate child who wanted to be a firefighter. Dozens of firefighters from all over the state stood side-by-side outside the church during the funeral.

Caroline Previdi, or 'Silly Caroline' as she was known, was also laid to rest today. Family and friends say she was known for her infectious smile. She would sit with a kindergartner on the bus every day to make him feel more at ease about going to school.

The funeral for Charlotte Bacon was the last to be held today. The 6-year-old was remembered as an outgoing redhead who could light up any room. She leaves behind a brother, also a student at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

A wake was also held tonight for the school's principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who police say was more than likely the first person to confront gunman Adam Lanza. A private funeral for Hochsprung will be held tomorrow.
