Six year old Noah Pozner was the youngest victim of the rampage. His twin sister escaped from the attack unhurt. In his obituary his family said he was "an impish, larger-than-life little boy." Rabbi Edgar Gluck attended the services where the boy's mother spoke. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RABBI EDGAR GLUCK SAYING: "She spoke about him in glowing, glowing terms and the main thing she left was one point -- she said whenever she told him I love you, his answer to her was not as much as I love you."
