Sandy Hook Funerals Start, Family Reads Eulogy for 6-Year-Old Boy
Noah Pozner's funeral is accompanied by a heartbreaking message from the grieving family
At Abraham L. Green & Son Funeral Home, in Fairfield, the family of Noah Pozner is remembering the little boy who lost his life in the Sandy Hook massacre.A 20-year-old man by the name of Adam Lanza took his mother's several guns and opened fire in the Newtown, Connecticut Elementary, killing 26 people.
Noah is among the 20 kids that were murdered on Friday. Connecticut State Police released the children's names in a statement, on Saturday.
Noah had 2 sisters – Arielle, his twin, and 8-year-old Sophia. The three children always played together. Arielle survived the shooting, having been a student in a separate classroom.
He was passionate about everything mechanical, and had just celebrated his birthday 2 weeks before. For the celebration, the video-game lover received a Wii as a present.
“[He was] smart as a whip,” his uncle, Alexis Haller of Woodinville, describes him, according to the Woodinville Patch.
He expressed the family's sentiments by reading an eulogy for the 6-year-old, whom he described as caring and vivacious. Noak liked jokes, and would always tell his sisters he was employed in a taco factory.
The 6-year-old was equally found of animals, as he was of technology. He enjoyed playing video games, and was particularly crazy about the Mario Brothers.
At his tender age, he was already an avid reader. His parents describe that he could read very well. The next book he planned on taking on was a Ninjago book that he had purchased at a fair.
Haller also told those present at the eulogy that his nephew was looking forward to a birthday party he had been invited to. He never got the chance to attend it, as it was scheduled for Saturday, December 15, one day after he perished in the Newtown massacre.
