Six year old Jack Pinto was buried in his hero's football jersey in a small white coffin. He was one of 20 children and six adults massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Jack wore a New York Giants jersey with receiver Victor Cruz's number 80 on it. During Sunday's game, Cruz wore shoes with "R.I.P. Jack Pinto" written on the side.

Six year old Noah Pozner was the youngest victim of the rampage. His twin sister escaped from the attack unhurt. In his obituary his family said he was "an impish, larger-than-life little boy."
