Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto, both 6, were the first laid to rest.
“Today is extremely emotional,” Noah’s aunt, Victoria Haller, tells PEOPLE. “My sister-in-law has been pretty much a wreck, which you can imagine. It’s the worst thing in the world to lose a child.”
Pozner, a loving boy who was inseparable from his siblings, had his services at Abraham L. Green and Son Funeral Home in Farfield, Conn., with his burial at B’nai Israel Cemetery in Monroe, Conn.
The entrance to the funeral home was adorned with white balloons. A large oak tree across from the home was covered with a sign that says, “Our hearts are with you Noah.”
