"You were a sweet little girl and you will be missed."
That's how Paige Tremblay said goodbye to six-year-old Caroline Previdi on Twitter Saturday. Tremblay's five-year-old niece was a playmate of Previdi's, according to her feed. "It hurts even more to see a familiar name on that list," she said in a later tweet.
Caroline was among the 20 children killed when a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday.
People who knew Caroline added their condolences to a recently published Facebook page called "RIP Caroline Previdi - Sandy Hook Massacre Victim," in addition to comments from people all around the world. Many of them described the girl as "precious" and a "little angel," like so many of the children lost Friday. A photo of Caroline posted to the page shows a girl with a wide, toothy grin, described by one poster as contagious, spread across her cherubic face, with a light blue bow in her shoulder-length brown hair.
Taylor Smith said on Facebook that she will miss playing with Caroline on visits to the Previdi household.
"I will see you again some day Caroline and we can play soccer and hide-and-seek like we always did when I came over," the post from Sunday morning read. "You showed me what it was like to be a kid again."
One person who never met Caroline said that just seeing her photo was enough to leave a hole in his heart.
"(I don't) even know her but i miss her already," Kevin Wallace's post said.
