(CBS News) NEWTOWN, Conn. - One week after the incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, there were five more funerals on Friday for the victims lost in the shooting: two adults and three children.
Six-year-old Olivia Engel loved being a big sister and helping her little brother explore.
Dylan Hockley loved chocolate and seeing the moon.
Grace McDonnell's family says she dreamed of being a painter.
A memorial service for Emilie Parker was held Thursday night in Ogden, Utah. Her father, Robbie Parker, is heartbroken.
"Coming up the roads," he said, "and we started to see all the ribbons and all your tributes to Emile-- and a lot of you guys don't even know who she is, a lot of you never even met her," said Parker tearfully.
The last two faculty members were also laid to rest Friday. Rachel D'Avino's boyfriend was planning to propose on Christmas Eve. School psychologist Mary Sherlach was remembered for her devotion to kids in trouble.
The processions of hearses in Newtown are nearing an end. Kim Senell doesn't know anyone here, but traveled from Virgina to pay her respects.
"Just felt the call to come," she explained, "and so we got in the car and drove from Virginia. Just thinking about how many hurting people there are, how the acts of evil can affect so many people."
Thousands of condolence letters have overwhelmed the Newtown post office. The postmaster said they have come from across the country and all over the world.
The last of 20 children and seven adults will be laid to rest Saturday.
