    Funerals for students Josephine Gay, Ana Marquez-Greene, Emilie Parker held (Published Friday, Jan 17, 2014)

    (NECN) - Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy ordered state and American flags to be raised again to full staff at sunset on Saturday.

    This comes as the last funerals for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy were held.

    The service for 7-year-old Josephine Gay was held at St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church in Newtown, Conn.

    Her family says she was autistic, and although she couldn't talk, she touched the lives of many people around her.

    The family has established Joey's fund through "The Doug Flutie,Jr. Foundation for Autism"  to honor the 7-year-old.

    Proceeds will go to help families raising autistic children.

    The funeral for 6-year-old Ana Marquez-Greene was held Saturday in Bloomfield, Conn.

    The girl's grandmother said the family moved to Connecticut from Canada just two months ago.

    Ana's 9-year-old brother was also at the school at the time of the shooting, but escaped safely.

    And the service for 6-year-old Emilie Parker was held Saturday in Utah.

    Her family says she loved to try new things, was always smiling, and never missed a chance to draw a picture or make a card.

    Emilie is survived by her parents and two siblings -- ages 3 and 4.
