Yesterday, family and friends bid farewell to three more students, a teacher, and sandy hook principal Dawn Hochsprung — all victims of the shooting.

Among them were 7-year-old Daniel Barden, known for his smile and missing two front teeth.

A tearful goodbye was also given to Charlotte Bacon and Caroline Previdi.

And then there was Vicki Soto, the 27-year-old teacher who was hailed as a hero for protecting the kids in her class.

Singer Paul Simon was at her service and offered a tribute of his own.

Turns out, he’s a friend of the family. He picked up an acoustic guitar and performed “The Sound of Silence.” It was one of Soto’s favorite songs.
