She said her granddaughter loved school and dresses. Her hair was a mass of beautiful red curls.

Olivia Engel, 6
Her favorite stuffed animal was a lamb; pink and purple were her favorite colors.

James Matiolli, 6

"She was all about peace and gentleness and kindness," Lynn McDonnell told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "Grace didn't have an ounce of hate in her
Soto's mother said her daughter was selfless. "She would not hesitate to think to save anyone else before herself, and especially children. She loved them more than life-"

"You were a sweet little girl and you will be missed."

That's the message that Caroline's aunt reportedly tweeted, saying goodbye to her niece.

"He had a huge heart and he was so much fun, a little bit rambunctious, lots of spirit," Noah's aunt told CNN. "He was really the light of the room."

"She had an answer for everything, she didn't miss a trick, and she outsmarted us every time. We called her our little CEO for the way she carefully thought out and planned everything," they said. "We can not imagine our life without her."
