Wednesday marks another day of funerals for the victims of the school shootings in Connecticut.

Adam Lanza murdered his mother, before he shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14.

He shot and killed 20 children and six adults, before he killed himself.

Newtown will hold four more funerals today.

First grader teacher Victoria Soto was killed while trying to shield her students from bullets.

“She would not hesitate to think to save anyone else before herself, and especially children,” her mother Donna said. “She loved them more than life, and she would definitely put herself in front of them any day.”

“(Soto)instinctively went into action, when a monster came into her classroom, and tried to protect the kids that she loved so much,” cousin James Wiltsie said.

Seven-year-old Daniel Barden, 6-year old Caroline Previdi, and 6-year old Charlotte Bacon will also be laid to rest Wednesday.

Barden  was a drummer and formed a band with his brother and sister.

“He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world,” Daniel’s family said.

A Facebook page called “RIP Caroline Previdi — Sandy Hook Massacre Victim” has more than 5,400 “likes.”

Bacon’s grandmother described Charlotte as sweet, outgoing and full of energy.

“This is tough. This is surreal. You can’t believe this could happen,” said Irene Hagen.   “The whole family is just devastated and we’re all trying to come to terms with it.”
