NEWTON, CT (AP) - A funeral home filled Monday with mourners for Noah Pozner, 6-years-old. A rabbi presided at Noah's service, and in keeping with Jewish tradition, the boy was laid to rest in a simple brown wooden casket with a Star of David on it.

Noah was eulogized as a boy who liked animals, video games and Mexican food.

Inside the funeral, his mother moved everyone to tears with her stories.

Rabbi Edgar Gluck said, "When she told him 'I love you,' his answer was: 'not as much as I love you.'"

"I will miss your perpetual smile, the twinkle in your dark blue eyes, framed by eyelashes that would be the envy of any lady in this room," Noah's mother, Veronique Pozner, said at the service, according to remarks the family provided to The Associated Press. Both services were closed to the news media.

"Most of all, I will miss your visions of your future," she said. "You wanted to be a doctor, a soldier, a taco factory manager. It was your favorite food, and no doubt you wanted to ensure that the world kept producing tacos."

She closed by saying: "Momma loves you, little man."

"If Noah had not been taken from us, he would have become a great man. He would been a wonderful husband and a loving father," Noah's uncle, Alexis Haller, told mourners, according to remarks he provided to The Associated Press.

Noah's twin, Arielle, who was assigned to a different classroom, survived the killing frenzy.
