It's a scene that is playing out again in Newtown, Connecticut -- grim-faced mourners heading into a church to attend a funeral for one of the young victims of last week's shooting at an elementary school.

Six-year-old Catherine Hubbard was one of the 20 children who died.

Today, friends and family -- including Catherine's aunt and uncle who are from Pittsford -- came out to say goodbye to the little girl.

Her family said in her obituary that she would be remembered for her passion for animals and her constant smile.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to the Newtown Animal Center, PO Box 475, Newtown, CT 06470.
