Jessica Rekos funeral: Sandy Hook Elementary shooting victim to be laid to rest Tuesday

While adults and children try to move on, two more 6-year-olds from Sandy Hook will be laid to rest Tuesday.

Jessica Rekos was obsessed with horses -- horse books, horse movies, drawing horses and writing stories about them. She was eagerly anticipating a pair of cowgirl boots for Christmas.

As her relatives grieve, they are also "trying to help her brother Travis understand why he can't play with his best friend," her family said.

Charlotte Bacon was a bundle of energy under her distinctive red curls. She also loved school and dresses, her grandmother told CNN affiliate WCCO in Minnesota.

According to WVIT-TV in Connecticut, a wake for Bacon will be held Tuesday.

An obituary for James Mattioli described him as a kind, energetic, thoughtful and considerate boy who recently chose to forgo a gift for himself, and decided to use that money to purchase a mug for his Grandfather for Christmas instead."

According to NewsTimes.com , the funeral for Mattioli will be held Tuesday.

The series of funerals will carry on for days. Some residents in this emotionally drained community plan to attend multiple funerals this week.
