NEWTOWN, Conn. - Mourning continued today for Newtown, Conn. as three more young victims from last week's school shooting were laid to rest.

Josephine Gay, who turned seven just three days before the shooting, was remembered at a service at St. Rose of Lima Church in Newtown. Her family says she was a big Baltimore Ravens fan and asked all mourners to wear purple, Josephine's favorite color, in her honor.

A funeral was held in Utah for 6-year-old Emilie Parker, who lived with her parents and two sisters in Utah before moving to Newtown earlier this year. Emilie's father Robbie was the first parent of a victim to speak openly about the shooting. Many in her hometown of Ogden are wearing pink ribbons in remembrance.
