Friends, family and even total strangers lined the streets outside of two Newtown, Conn. funeral homes Monday to remember and honor two little boys killed in Friday's school shooting.

Both boys, who were just six-years-old, were killed when a gunman opened fire in their elementary school.

Family and friends of Jack Pinto gathered to say goodbye to him during an open casket funeral at Honan Funeral Home.

FOX 29's Omari Fleming reports there were warm embraces and tender gestures as mourners comforted each other.

The lives of Pinto and the youngest victim, Noah Pozner, were celebrated during separate ceremonies.

Friends describe Jack  as a Giants fan, who loved wide receiver Victor Cruz. He was also known as a member of the Newtown wrestling team, which traveled without him to a meet Sunday.

Team members were reluctant to share their feelings about saying goodbye to Jack.,
