“Momma Loves You, Little Man”


The mother and uncle of 6-year-old Noah Pozner delivered a messages at his funeral reflecting on the life of the little boy killed on December 14, 2012 school shooting at Newton, Connecticut, USA.


From mother, Veronique Pozner:


The sky is crying, and the flags are at half-mast. It is a sad, sad

day. But it is also your day, Noah, my little man. I will miss your

forceful and purposeful little steps stomping through our house. 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.


Most of all, I will miss your visions of your future. 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



You were a little boy whose life force had all the gravitational pull

of a celestial body. You were light and love, mischief and pranks. You

adored your family with every fiber of your 6-year-old being. We are

all of us elevated in our humanity by having known you. A little

maverick, who didn’t always want to do his schoolwork or clean up his

toys, when practicing his ninja moves or Super Mario on the Wii seemed

far more important.


Noah, you will not pass through this way again. I can only believe

that you were planted on Earth to bloom in heaven. Take flight, my

boy. Soar. You now have the wings you always wanted. Go to that

peaceful valley that we will all one day come to know. I will join you

someday. Not today. I still have lots of mommy love to give to

Danielle, Michael, Sophia and Arielle.


Until then, your melody will linger in our hearts forever. Momma loves

you, little man.
