Avielle Richman’s spirit drew people in.
Those who knew the 6-year-old girl with curly, brown hair will remember her infectious smile, peals of laughter and her spirit, according to her obituary.
Avielle moved to Newtown last year with her parents, Jennifer Hensel and Jeremy Richman. She was among those killed Friday when a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
She spent the summer swimming, going to the library and practicing archery. Avielle also went on a 1,300-mile road trip with her family from Sandy Hook to Iowa, according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, based in Waterloo, Iowa.
