Conn. victim laid to rest next to grandpa in Utah
OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Emilie Parker, a 6-year-old victim of the school shootings in Connecticut, was laid to rest next to her grandfather Saturday in Ogden, where she was born.
Burial at Evergreen Memorial Park followed a private funeral for family and close friends at a Mormon church across the street from Ben Lomond High School, where Emilie's parents, Robbie and Alissa Parker, met.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported Emilie's parents emerged from the solemn service carrying their two other daughters, Madeline and Samantha. The girls were wearing pink coats, their sister's favorite color.
The funeral procession then proceeded through streets lined by pink-clad observers, and by trees, bushes, signs and utility poles draped with pink ribbons and banners.
A public memorial service was held Thursday in Ogden for Emilie.
